A Surprise Appearance

What a surprise to see this Barred Owl
sitting on a birdhouse in a field we
pass on our way home on this very
cold winter late afternoon as twilight

Warm and Snuggly

Josie loves cotton throws...
as a winter chill permeates the outside air.

Through the Mist

After the rain last night a mist gently lifted up from the 
marsh enveloping the Great Blue Heron.

A mysterious pile of sand appeared
at the bottom of the steps yesterday

I had noticed a wide furry black tail disappear into
the side wall.
It wasn't a chipmunk or red squirrel.
Who could it be.

While waiting quietly at the bottom of the steps, 
I noticed a tiny movement in the corner of the
 bottom step and then I saw the culprit.

a very industrious baby woodchuck!

A chipping sparrow fluffed up to keep warm.

A sparrow finds nourishment...
