Winter showed up with a bang today. Blustery and cold, and it snowed hard for much of the morning. Brr. It didn’t take that long to shovel, though, so maybe it was only four inches or so. When we left to play bridge tonight, the car thermometer showed a cold eight degrees. I wonder if this will be the snow that sticks through the rest of the winter?
Our new bird feeders have been doing quite the brisk business. We knew a storm was coming with all of the increased traffic out there. We think this little guy is either a hairy or a downy woodpecker. There have been three or four very similar guys hanging around lately. Isn’t he beautiful?
