The picture is on again. Yes, it's a lake now. Not a pond!

OT, but since there are no birds anyway ...

Agree, not a pond. Pond and lake are different species, born in different ways. :book:. I think ...

Although in these days a pond can be made to look like a lake, given an excavator or two. Conversely, a lake can take on a pond-like appearance but then it is likely to be on its way to death.

About -let, as in lakelet:
In Estonian the ending -ke is sprinkled liberally at the end of nouns and names to indicate something small and lovable: kiisuke, elevandike, kotkake and so on (kitten, elephant, eagle). The lovable aspect is by now likely to be as strong as marking (imaginary) size. A nasty little lake would probably not be called järveke. But basically anything can be -ke-d

Same use as German -chen.

Nothing corresponding in Swedish, for instance.

English -let: agree, flatlet is smaller than flat (but not necessarily more lovable). But, Alice: quadruplet? :mrgreen:

If all the water here of Lake Nova would freeze overnight it would be a perfect skatingground :mrgreen:

I was thinking about that -- I saw it is meant to get colder and Jo posted it is meant to get colder.

The freeze is supposed to start tonight and gradually deepen, according to ILM

Ooops - that was for Tallinn.
Silma will take a little longer to cool down

i Finnish the "diminutive function" is shown in the end of word with the ending -nen, like -chen in German and -let in English. (i love the word pondlet! :D ) but i was really surprised to learn that there isn't a corresponding ending in Swedish. i had never thought about that.

Welcome knulp
and I agree with Ame about the picture of the Jay
Us Americans usually just see little grey blobs with a stripe on their sides. It is always nice to be reminded how beautiful the jays are.

I saw how Tiit visited the feeding place few minutes ago...it's so dark and I didn't understand what he brought but something there is for our feathered friends! :2thumbsup:

It seems to be windy, at least it sounds windy and there is thunder (I heard thunder at Kasmu earlier)

Yes, welcome, Knulp, & thank you for the picture of the jay.

I agree that the Eurasian Jays seen in Estonia are lovely, but I must disagree with Alice's statement about jays that we Americans "usually just see little grey blobs with a stripe on their sides." We actually have several species of jays. Along the west coastal areas of the USA where Alice is located, the jays seen are the Gray (or grey) Jay-- a lovely grey, very tame bird also called a "camp robber" or a "whiskey jack." There is also the Pinyon Jay (a western mountain states species), which is a blue-grey color; Stellar's Jay, another western mountain states species which should be found near Alice's area (bright blue body & black, crested head); the Western Scrub-Jay of the western states lowlands areas (blue with grey around eyes & on back); & then the most wide-spread jay over about 2/3 of the country, the Blue Jay (in my area, central USA), a beautiful blue bird with a crested head, some white on wings, a soft white-grey belly, & some black striping near the eyes. I am familiar with the Gray Jay (these will come down & actually eat out of your hand, they are fearless), the Pinyon Jay, & the Stellar's Jay because I grew up in Montana, a northwestern state where all 3 of these are found. I now am surrounded by Blue Jays as I live in the center of the USA in Missouri now.

There are actually a few more species located in small areas in the southern states. If interested, info is here: http://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/browse_tax/20/

Edit: :blush: Sorry for such a long post, I just like jays, although many people consider them a pest in neighborhoods. They are LOUD!

Those clouds coming in look ominous. I hear sleet falling sometimes, too.

no no Kitty
I only meant our views of the Eurasian Jays -- as seen on the pig cam for example are just grey blobs. I forget that they are beautiful -- and I don't think have ever seen one at any of the feeders, where as here jays do come to feeders. I agree our jays are lovely (although yours maybe prettier than mine)

Do Eurasian Jays come to feeders?

Ooooohhhh! I thought you meant we didn't have very pretty jays. :slap: :blush: You are right, we do not usually see such a good picture of the Eurasian jays on the cams. I recall last year they landed on teh bird table at the back of the Siga boar cam (were the deer carcass is now), but I wouldn't actually call that visiting a feeder. I don't think I've seen any at the Toidumaja feeder cam.

It looks like the storm is definitely coming now. Look at that snow blow in the wind gust!
