We have Snow!
After getting through December and most of January with little or no snow, today we have it. I suppose I shouldn't complain, and I won't, as long as it goes quickly. I don't like winter!! We're not long home from a birthday brunch at a friends house. What a feed....homemade granola, fruits, three different quiches, roasted potato, a variety of breads, jams and jellies, all finished off with a birthday cake...angel food cake with lemon filling and a load of whipped cream for the icing. I am stuffed! I was thinking of you Pete, lol.
There are lots of birds around today, Juncos, Nuthatches, Jays both the blue and grey, crows, grosbeaks, woodpeckers and chick a dees. I've had a Boreal Chick a Dee coming to the feeders for ages and figured there was only the one. But, low and behold, today on one of the suet blocks there were two. The first time I've seen two together. I was well pleased.
A few pictures.
One of the boreal chick a dees. They are the sweetest little birds.
Some of the rascals who fly in every day for food.
