The new year
The birds are very happy that I filled the feeders this morning. The picture is taken from the kitchen window and is blurry because of that and the fact that is it snowing. The Christmas tree is providing some shelter particularly to the cardinals. I am glad I put it out there yesterday. Earlier there were seven male cardinals around the feeder. They are so brilliant in the snow. This picture only captures Mr. Flicker just above the snowman's hat. The cardinals fly in and out to the big fir tree in the background. The road is not visible in the top of the shot because of the snow. Isn't it nice that all of us in the U.S. can share in this horrible weather. I am just kidding, but we are sure "united" in our misery.
Second picture is Zippy and Junior resting on the wool roving rug in front of the stairs. Zippy often rests there.
Short post since Blogger will not let me add any pictures. Maybe more later.
