Our snow is almost gone. There are just a few drifts left. It is dry at the snow stick. We will have a snow stick contest IF we ever get a bunch more snow. I have some new woodcarvings in the works for some winners or maybe it will just be a drawing.
Spent birdseed has been removed shovel by shovel. A few a day….wouldn’t want to rush anything. The stacking plastic chairs made it to the patio. More doggy dew was dispatched to the woods. A coyote was on the east side of the house…he left a hair filled deposit. Might explain why the Border Collie was nervous a few days.
More birds were photographed. The Redpoll numbers have decreased…some must have went North.
Redpoll just hanging around.
A White Breasted Nuthatch and a Pine Siskin sharing while a Redpoll waits her turn!
The Pine Siskins arrived with the warm temperatures. We also had an immature Red Bellied Woodpecker…and his belly did have a few feather areas that were red. We were just sitting outside for a bit that day so I didn’t get a photo.
This is an older Red Bellied Woodpecker…he never did cooperate with me to see if he had a red belly or not. He has some beautiful tail feathers.
Our resident birds stay all year round the Nuthatches, Chickadees and Woodpeckers. The others come and go as the weather changes.
My other baby brother called me one day he and she who sees Robins first saw a Robin. They didn’t get a photo so it doesn’t count besides that they were in Missouri.
