We have not had very much snow this past Winter, just little bursts every now and then, enough to make lovely images, and make the roads a little slick.
It is Spring and a Winter storm is approaching us, which may give us more snow this evening and tomorrow.
It is all fine with me...I like the beauty, not the cold and so I stay inside as much as possible.
Above and below are the Winter visitors, the White-throated Sparrows.
I am linking up with Mary for:
Happy Monday, Happy Week, Happy Mosaic Monday~
Silly Gray Squirrel, thinking he is going to rob my bird feeder.
This one, like the others that I have are Squirrel proof.
Yep, right they are.
This Squirrel will have his fill as soon as he figures out, once again that once the outside lid goes down, he can lift the center one and that will be that!
We are always as cautious as possible when we see deer crossing signs, or otherwise and as soon as we slow down, allow the deer to safely cross, they always give us a look, like how dare you...ha ha
Blue Jays hang out all year long and are quite vocal, often times mocking the voice of the Red-Shouldered Hawks...I love them!
Besides the birdseed and suet cakes, I also offer the wildlife, left over hotcakes, stale breads, popcorn, and fruit and veggie rinds and caps and they devour it all~
The Tufted Titmouse likes to tuck seeds in the grooves and crevices of our cedar home, much to the chagrin of the husby~
Soon these sweet little charmers shall once again fly off in different directions.
Dark-eyed Juncos are such a fave around here, and I certainly miss them, once they leave along with the White-throated Sparrows~
I rarely get to view the Golden-crowned Kinglet.
They are around the grove all year round, but they move quite swiftly, flitting from tree to tree searching out a quick nip of nutrition~
The wee Carolina Wrens are just such sweet little birds and the one below was taking a few minutes to preen itself.
They have already set up a nest in a nest box inside our garage.
There is a little opening above the garage where they can enter, and leave at will.
The only bad thing with this setup is when the little ones have fledged, they always end up stressed and stuck in weird places and I have to help catch them every season to get them free and out with the adults...
The American Robins actually stay around in large numbers during the Winter months. There is usually enough warmer weather when they can catch Earthworms, as well as enough fruits left from Autumn to get them through~
A female Eastern Towhee/Rufous sided Towhee waits her turn at seed on the ground.
I always worry over the little ground eaters, since the neighbors next door, and behind us have outdoor cats that are constantly slinking around our bushes and trees...grrr!
