 in Maine as they described the super winter storm
along the coast.
She was very concerned!

Wishes for the new year

Bluebirds visited us in Maine
a few days ago...
hope they are a symbol of happiness
in 2018 along with kindness,
peace, contentment and good health 
for all.

The juncos along with blue jays, chickadees, nuthatches,
sparrows, cedar waxwings, tufted titmouse, starlings, cardinals,
woodpeckers, mourning doves, gray squirrels 
and the little red squirrel are visitors.
We try to make sure they all have food.
Peanuts are a favorite of the blue jays and squirrels.
It was -13 this morning.
 Here is the white-throated sparrow
taking shelter in the snow covered rhododendron.
I love painting birds.

Josie and I send our best wishes!

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!
