Day 76 - 16th March 2017 - Chickadee, Red Breasted Nuthatch and White Breasted Nuthatch

It's snowing out again... at 4am the stars where in the sky, less than an hour later and it looks like a blizzard! But it was short lived, road is covered though so drive carefully on the way to work this morning.  Dear Spring why are you teasing us?  The ice started to break up again in the lake yesterday, I'm sure that's the 5th time this winter it's come and gone. Birds were busy at the feeders, both of the Nuthatches were around as well as a Brown Creeper (too elusive for shots), I can hear the Pileated Woodpecker as well. Evening Grosbeaks count at 31, a few are missing, with a number of Goldfinches, Blue Jays, Mourning Doves and Chickadees. Got the first of my Whirligigs painted - will be faster to do a batch at a time, but want to run it by the pros first. Brownies made for a funeral reception this afternoon (I'm at the Hall once again this morning, helping get things ready). Our community has been hard hit this winter.


Everyone wanted to hide - Red Breasted Nuthatch.
White Breasted Nuthatch

Enjoy your day!
