Update On Miggs With A Bit Of This & That

Miggs had her  surgery yesterday , it went well and she did well to . We are going to pick her up later this afternoon . Now for the next 6 to 8 weeks of recovery and hoping by spring Miggs will be back to her old self . WOOHOO !

Now for the bit of this and that lol !
Weather ! what WACKY weather we have been having , more snow this year for us then we have had in years and cold BRR down right nasty cold , but just a few days ago we had high temps and major melt down  with lots and lot of rain which was nice to have the warmer temps and to see lots of green grass again .  The high temps and melt down we had has sent the rivers into a frenzied chaos as huge chunks of ice and debris  cause all kinds of flooding and blockages some of our port towns by lake Erie had to be evacuated due to it all . Our river here seems to be ok so far.

Now we have just had more snow fall all though temps aren't that bad and the grass is once again all white but the temps are to climb again as the week goes on and we are to have two days of rain again , gona be another mess for our water ways .

These two birdies have been good at sharing the suet for a few days now . So cute to see and watch them all every day .

Junco on the left and a Downy Woodpecker on the right . Our Juncos are getting smarter as these birds usually are ground feeders but the ones here this year are sitting on the feeders and feasting more  , some have even learnt to balance on the Nijar feeder and feast  which  is odd to see .

Mr Squirrel lives in our big old  tree that this garden wraps around and I often see him coming home with special treats as he stores them in the tree and often sits on my pick fence and  enjoys those treats . I used to feed them peanuts but it got to a point where they were taking over the yard for them so I had to stop but looks like they are getting goodies from our neighbors MR & MRS H and bringing them here to feast on  lol !

Well that's about it for me for a bit here . Miggs will be home later today , resting and getting more TLC  . We will have her set up in a special harness  to help her walk and keep the pressure off her operated leg till it heals and gets stronger gona be a challenge for us all . Thanks to you all for your well wishes for our Miggs she sends you all tail wags and kisses !
                                                    Until next time

Sorry to hear that Miggs has not been well, but I hope that she is on the mend now. Just to let you know too that I am sort of back blogging a little bit.

Good to hear things went well with Miggs, I'm sure she can't wait to get home, though I bet she is getting spoiled at the vets. We had some snow overnight, not a lot, but I'm not venturing out today to go for our walk, used the treadmill instead. Will get out a bit later on and shovel the paths to the feeders and get them all filled once again. The birds are just about all back now, probably thanks to the bluejays who squawk and squawk upon finding the peanuts. :0

Hi there, I had missed that Miggs had hurt her leg, so sorry. I hope the surgery will make her like her old self once she recovers. Love your birds.

Interesting to see that the juncos (yours at least) are adapting.

Hello, I am glad the surgery went well. I think you and Miggs will be happy to be home. Great photo of your woodie. Happy Wednesday, enjoy your day!

Best wishes for Miggs, I hope she's raring to go for springtime. About 1 1/2 weeks ago (the weekend), our furnace stopped working for almost the full weekend and it was -30°C with the windchill. What an awful weekend that was. And then like you said, a few days later all the snow was melting. As soon as I saw the grass I had spring fever. I guess I need to be patient though, especially since it's all covered up with snow again LOL. I love your bird picture. The Downy Woodpecker here is the head honcho (at least when the blue jays aren't around). As soon as he flies up, everybody leaves and won't come back until he's gone. Have a great week.

Nice to see the bird photos and that squirrel looks fairly well fed as well, Elaine. Glad things are improving for Miggs too.
