a winter's day.

While Brody stretched out for
a nap this morning ( it amazes me how he stretches
out his back legs!)
the chickadee was surrounded
by the fluffiest snow.

It was so very beautiful!
Have a look over here.

Whenever Brody sees D
near the kitchen counter,
his eyes follow his every move and his ears
listen for a special sound...
the  crinkle of the bag of the Greenies treats...
he is ready and waiting!

A Special Visitor This Week

It snowed early this week and what a lovely surprise
to see Cedar Waxwings as they briefly stopped
to dine on the crabapples.

A Look Out the Window

Early morning, looking out the window
while snow lightly fell once again

the squirrels (little red and big gray)
took over the bird feeders.

Now the sun has appeared through clouds.

We think more snow is on the way for

Still Snowing

As it snowed again this morning, more birds
flocked to the birdfeeders.

The snow changed to rain after several more inches....

The Birds in the Blizzard

A few of the birds who stopped by 
during the blizzard today were
 the  Carolina wren ...

the starling

the woodpecker


the cardinal

the chickadee

the sparrow

the bluejay

and some doves!

Saturday Morning of the Blizzard

Wow, we got more that 2 feet of snow, hard to tell from
the windows.
I looked out over the desolate wind blown yard to see little red
working his way over to the bird feeders.

Made it!

Hanging on!

Has company next door!

Where are the birds?

New England is in for a big blizzard this
weekend, a Nor' easter and it has already begun snowing
here. Woke up to about 4 inches overnight and there could be 2 feet
by the end of it.

We're in for a lot of shoveling!
Hope everyone stays safe and warm!
