Two weeks ago himself had a heart attack.  Friday past he had a double by-pass.  He's doing well at the moment and will feel a bit better as each day passes.   I'm anxious to get him home but that won't be for another week or so.

We've had more snow but today and the next few days are to be sunny.  It's been a beautiful day today with a good bit of warmth coming from the sun even though we are still in February.  

A few pictures after the last snowfall.

A blue jay enjoying the suet.

Malachi loves having his stomach rubbed so when he wants this, he lays on his back and looks up with this sweet face.  Who can resist!

That's about it, not much else happening these days.

Brrrrr! Cold!

On the way back from shopping on a rather bleak day.   As you can see in the first picture, the ocean is frozen over.

So, winter goes on and on......   We had some terrific wind last week and the house, at times, was literally shuddering.   The power went at some point over night but was back on when I got up the next morning.   We've been having some clear nights hence the nights have been terribly cold.

Poor little birds.  One wonders how they get through it all.  The only thing I can do is provide suet and fatty seeds to help them through the nights.   A nice surprise the other day, I was on my way out to fill the feeders when I saw that a group of Redpolls had arrived.

Nothing much happening with me.  Seems we're in the winter doldrums.  Time is flying though and once March arrives, things seem to brighten up.  At least that's the feeling I get.  Guess it's because Spring is just around the corner. 

One more picture of my favorite bird.  Sitting in the sun.
