Nuthatch visit

It rained again all day on Thursday, and when the rain was done fall was here. Today it's dry, sunny, and 56 degrees out.

Bird must be from New Zild; it's upside-down.

Why do I always crave stirfry after reading your posts???

Fall is here too. Sounds like we are having about the same weather. It was 3 degrees here this morning! I think that's about 37 or 38 Fahrenheit Burr!!!

a mushroom walked into a bar. The bartender said, we don't serve mushrooms here. The mushroom said, "but I'm such a fungi".

Randal Graves said...

Jennifer said...

I needed a nuthatch hit today!! I love those goofy little birds.

Jennifer said...

Also, I must admit, my truuuue faves are the red-breasted ones. Those are the ones that came through here. Do you get any of those, thudner?

I can't remember seeing them, Jennifer.

Now that I'm listening to their songs, I'm wondering if that 'cork coming out of a bottle' song I've been hearing is coming from the white-breasted nuthatches.

More investigation required...

Kathleen said...

have you downloaded songs from that website Thundra? I want to but I need to know I won't be corrupting my computer.

I've never seen such colorful mushrooms. They're so pretty, they MUST be poisonous.

Smut Clyde said...

DO NOT EAT fungus #2.

vacuumslayer said...

I knew it!

ifthethunderdontgetya™³²®© said...

What about colorful fungi #1, S.C.?

Smut Clyde said...

Got no idea about #1 so I'm gonna be uncharacteristic and keep my mouth shut.
#2 is a white-gilled amanita, though, and they are generally bad news.

Smut Clyde said...

Cheated. Looked in book.
#1 could be Hygrocybe persistens.

Thanks, S.C., I think you're right.

Kathleen, I downloaded those songs. I'll email them to you via Jennifer.

fungus #2 looks very Amanita-esque.

=liver failure

And I see Smut C. already said that

Stirfried nuthaches?

Stirfried nuthaches?

If your nuths are aching, stirfrying them will not help much.
