Inclement Weather Days (aka Wildlife-watching)

Snow, ice and bitter cold meant I spent almost two days with only the briefest of excursions outside. One was to refill the feeders and throw a few handfulls of sunflower seeds on the ground.

Snow on nose, squirrel looks for food in the storm.

Starlings discovered them the second day.  Ugh, starlings! They arrived in a raucous crowd, bumping each other and the glass sliding door. They left red-orange droppings all over the deck and yard.

The last of the invaders to leave.

Finally the sun came out and, despite freezing temperatures, melted the snow from the dark pavers.

Sunny days bring more squirrels.
