Another Snowy Sunday




We have snow and more snow from another stormy Sunday in February.  The power was off and now is on.  The driveway way was clear but is no more; yet will be again.

The only constant are the redpolls and ducks, the chickadees and pheasants that show up to be fed.   We feed them in the blizzard, in the dark and in the storms.  We've perfected the art of throwing food out the windows when we can't get to them otherwise. 

We can't stop feeding them just because it becomes a challenge.

You have quite a beautiful outdoor family who depend on your generosity Carol. Good to know they call your place home. Such hardy creatures.

Hi Carol. I finally have a purple finch at my feeders. I am glad someone else throws food out the windows for the birds. Of course, the squirrels get it, but I can show you lovely photos of our squirrels inside the squirrel-proof feeders. Keep your head above the snowbanks! Jane

Thanks for comments Gwen, Jane and Juliet.

Sometimes we talk about not feeding the birds. It is an expense, and a chore in storms. However we enjoy watching them so much, it is worth the effort. We are happy to share our place with them.
