Snow and Crazy Birdies

 Hello everyone. This is The Daily Bone and I'm your doggie reporter Chester L. W. Spaniel. 

This morning we woke up to snow on the ground. In fact, it was actually enough for the snow plow to  go rumbling by, clearing the streets and putting down salt!

It was almost enough for my ghostwriter to finally admit winter has arrived. (Oh, but she's sure we still should have some warm days left before Christmas.)

Yeah, whatever.

Anyhow, we filled all the birdie feeders so the little birdies won't go hungry in the cold temperatures.

But it seemed that every few seconds, they were all flying away.

Yum yum yum yum!

Then … zoom! 

And no, I'm not the one scaring them away!

And, yes, I have snow on my nose.

Bye bye birdies!


  1. I am glad you enjoy the snow. We don't like and, and boy did we get a lot.

  2. Hi Chester ~ well, first you taught me about squirrels, now you teached me about SNOW! I'll give you kitty kisses to lick it off your nose. I looked out my window the other day, I think I did see a little snow ... it sort of looked like yours, but not too much of it. Yours is very pretty. Now: go inside and get warmed up, have hot cocoa! Bye, JUNE

  3. You got the perfect amount of snow to play in, Chester. We sorta got overwhelmed☺

  4. Chester...well done on the Snow Bird report. I like the bright snow plow you have up in WNY.
    Ok speaking of B I R D S. There was a piece on the tv news this am that might interest you.
    Bunn, NC (about 40 miles from Raleigh) has a huge problem with Buzzards this year. They are flocking all over the city. (It is a small rural town) They land on roofs and are picking away shingles and the mortar out of chimneys. They dive bombed the tv camera man as he was taking photos.
    They have tried all kinds of methods to send them on their way. Today there will be a Big BOOM In Bunn hoping to scare the buzzards. As I hear I'll keep you posted. We might need you to make a road trip down here to help and of course you room and board here will be complimentary should that happen
    Hugs to you, GW and your Photo journalist.

  5. We were so happy to see the snow on the ground yesterday! Those birdies were very skittish weren't they?

  6. In my limited experience, birdies always know when it's time to panic and fly. Trust them to know what they're doing. That's how they stay healthy. Me too if I'm being honest. #runfirstaskquestionslater

  7. You're right, those are some silly birdies!! We think your world looks so pretty all covered with snow!

  8. No snow here, can we come over?

    Bet those birdies are so excited to find that food - thanks for taking such good care of them.

  9. Oh, your snow is FABulous Chester!!!! Do some mousie snufflin' for me, k?
    Oh, I thinks maybe a bigger burdie is around....our smaller burdies act like that when the hawks and falcons are about.

    1. You could be right, Ruby. We saw Mr. Cool Beans Cooper, our friendly neighborhood Cooper's Hawk swooping overhead today.

  10. We have snow! But it rained for a while today. Mom tells me that it will turn to snow when it gets dark. We also have a yard full of birds, but Mom does not put out seed for them, the cats would think we had set up a kitty smorgasbord. And yes, our hairy slobbery sister Cinnamon loves to bark at the birds too!

  11. You have more snow then us but it is currently falling so we will see what we end up with.

  12. We have some seeds on our table that slowly get taken away by one or two birds. They never stay on the table though, as there is a certain Miss O watching from the window sill and ready to pounce!


  13. Hi friend, Ojo here! Hurray for snow! And hurray for bird seed in the snow! Do you snack on it? Yum! Merry Christmas, friend!

  14. Hello Chester and family! I hope you're well.... Happy Holidays!!

  15. Hi friend, Ojo here! I missed this post! I would be the one scaring the birds away, it must have been me. Also I'm looking to offload some snow. Would you like some?
