Feeling Like A Gloomy Gus !


That's what my mum called me when the rainy gloomy weather kept me inside day after day and that's what it has been doing the past few days . I cant believe I am about to say this but I prefer snow then rain  this time of year , at least  with snow one can go out in it , rain and mud not so much lol ! I find at least snow is bright even with cloud, rain low clouds and mud DULL stuff  !

Whilst all the other blackbirds migrated I have noticed this one Grackle who seems to have stayed and didn't want to pack up his bird bag and fly south .  The birds don't seem to mind these gloomy gus day’s as long as they have plenty to munch on .

                                                                 Miggs was snoozing on the job earlier lol !

Miggs and Harley also seem like gloomy gus’s on rainy days like this to as Miggs came in and joined Harley , yup on Miggs bed . Harley takes it over when Miggs is out aside or they just share lol !


                                                                   A gloomy gus day where all snuggle up .

               Oh well at least the rain stopped and it got a bit brighter so Miggs and I had a nice walk this afternoon .

                                                                                   Until next time .

Cute photos. Your birds look happy. It' a winter wonderland here. I'd rather have that, too, than rain.

I could be called a gloomy Gus too when it rains. There is just something gloomy about rainy days. You sure have a lot of pretty birds at the feeders. Seems like we don't have many now. Poppy says it's because of Smokey, our cat. He stays outside a lot.

Miggs and Harley seem to have the right idea!
I went for a walk in the woods today ... and the rain! I thought it would make being cooped up inside a bit more bearable ;)

Nothing wrong with being gloomy on a rainy day, Elaine, but I am with you in that I would orefer snow. It's way prettier and I would be able to enjiy it while indoors.

The two animals sleeping side by side is very sweet.

I just made a batch of my all season suet, filled some feeders, and are now enjoying the birds snacking away. It sure has been a gloomy day with fog and misty rain. But it's better than ice and snow which had a double dose of this past week.
