|Looking for Squirrels|
|Chilly Willy Silly!|
The bird feeders have been extra busy with never less than a dozen birds. I believe they appreciate the extra seed we've put out for them during the afternoons. It takes a lot of energy and a lot of food to stay warm on days like today. Jacob woke me up last night to hear a Great Horned Owl hooting out over the white landscape. Perhaps, it was watching for rodent visitors to our bird feeders. It was wonderful to hear another owl species in the quiet hours. I just hope it doesn't scare the Barred Owls away since Great Horned Owls have been known to kill Barred Owls. Deer also make their rounds by the feeders cleaning up any leftovers. I've seen their muddy tracks in our yard, and today there were tracks in the snow. I'm thankful for our warm house, hot food, good jackets, sweaters, socks, rubber boots, fuzzy hats, scarves, ... , and a big window to watch the snow fall and birds come and go from our couch with snuggle dogs.
