There have been weather alerts flashing across the TV all day long. Since I watch so many recorded programs, I had to make sure it was a live warning and not a warning meant for last week some time. It was for today.
Last night I bought a new bucket of food for the little birds but didn't fill their feeders until this morning. I also threw out the sunflower seeds for the bigger birds and doves. Usually the bird will show up within 30 minutes as if they could hear the bucket rattling from where they were.
I took a bag of garbage out to the can about an hour later and realized there were no birds - large or small. There was a very ominous quiet settled over the neighborhood. No bird noises, no dogs, no children playing.
I assume the birds must be hunkered down for the approaching storm. They have not feed at all today so I have a feeling it will be a big storm. Luckily I have several books and books on CD to entertain me. I hope the electricity doesn't go out. We'll see what happens.
If there is no big storm, I'm not trusting those little birds again!!
