It Is HOT here.

It is HOT here where I live in East Texas.  Just how hot is it?  Well, I am going to tell you but since it is so hot, don't rush me.  It is too hot to hurry.

I have mentioned in past blog postings about my bird feeder and how much we enjoy watching all the birds.  We have been seeing a painted bunting quite often and he is really pretty flashing all those different colors.  Here is a picture that I found on www.audubon.org/field-guide/bird/painted-bunting:

Back to "how hot is it?", well it is so hot that it melted the suet blocks that I purchased to feed the birds.  In this next picture,  you can see that the block of suet with seeds has almost three quarters of it melted away and a lot of it dripped on the bird feeder.

 Here is closer picture of the mess on top of the feeder:

And of course one of the many squirrels just had to have a bite at the free lunch counter:

I was standing right there when he came out of the bushes and right after I took that picture, he was joined by another squirrel.  It is not unusual to see a half a dozen or more of them out there at one time, but not when I am standing right there.  They must be hungry or too lazy to go forage for food in the wild.  Now, you all have a great day, you hear?
