And then hangs upside down to eat them!
I had many of the birds I’ve already shown you pictures of this week, as well as a couple of new comers, also crowding the feeders this morning.
I think this is a white-breasted nuthatch:
The chickadees returned too. In this photo, there is a black-capped chickadee on the left, but I’m not sure about the bird on the right. It looks like a chickadee, but I’m not sure what type. I’d love it if you might be able to let me know in the comments:
Mr. and Mrs. Cardinal did make a brief appearance this morning as well, but I was either too quick or too slow to get a picture, depending on how you look at it. I saw Mrs. Cardinal out of the corner of my eye, and quickly grabbed my camera figuring Mr. was probably close by as well. However, I think my quick movement in the window spooked them and they took off before I could get the picture.
The squirrels and birds were not the only ones to have excellent treats (to steal a term from Gerry Sell over on Torch Lake) this morning. I recently discovered Dunkin Donuts has new chocolate lovers’ donuts for February. These required investigation:
(Sorry I didn’t think to take the picture before I had a bite!)
Top left: Reverse Boston Creme – white frosted chocolate donut with chocolate creme
Top right: Cocoa puff – sugar dusted chocolate donut with chocolate creme
Bottom right: Cocoa confetti (without the confetti) – chocolate donut glazed, normally with sprinkles. Different from usual very heavy chocolate cake donut; it was light and fluffy, as were the other two new chocolate ones.
Bottom left: Cupid’s Choice – heart-shaped, filled with vanilla creme and decorated with pink icing and Valentine sprinkles. My Sarah is not a big chocolate donut fan, so I thought she would prefer those.
Quite delicious! I think my waistline would prefer I stay out of Dunkin Donuts this month. My mouth disagrees.
