Winter is knocking

The feeder’s been loaded for two hours, and four chickadees are here, scrapping for primacy.It’s another frozen day, so while it seems a little early,  I’m starting to feed them.  It’s nice to see the chickadees again.  They keep to themselves all summer, but clearly, they keep an eye on me.The Family has a new spot to lounge.  I’ve been clearing buckthorn, and they love it.  They want to hang out in this alder, fine.Time for a relaxed groom.

The water was frozen in Silkieland.  This is what happened when I broke it. We were thirsty! She’s got a corn cob!  And a jean jacket.

bird feeder sightings

Can you see the rabbit?  Right of center.  The rabbits are light grey now, very cute.

The squirrels are regular patrons, and I even saw a vole out on top of the snow harvesting.  It ran down the hole in the snow around a trunk of tree.

Squirrels, rabbits, birds and voles – It’s a regular multi-class buffet around the bird feeder these days.  The dog wants a handful of Spitz at every feeder filling too  – nomnomnom.
