Snow day for Russell

A good day to be lazy...

Finally some snow worth talking about

We're expecting around 10" in Des Moines.  Still working on trails for Russ.  Here is what I'm seeing this morning (it's a wet snow)...

Taken from inside the house:



And from outside the house (I put out my feeder and cleared the ground underneath but hard to see the feeder through the snow on the branches):

Criss Cross

This has long been one of  Rusty's nicknames.  It was on display this morning.  Maybe he could be a model?

Yes, it is a "bird" feeder...

It seems like I'm feeding squirrels and deer these days (no turkeys yet this season) but my objective is to attract the birds.

White-Breasted Nuthatch


I like how it is peeking around the feeder

I included this to show the coloring underneath on the nuthatch

Downy Woodpecker

Nuthatch on the tree...Downy on the feeder

Lucky shot of the nuthatch taking flight

Black-Capped Chickadee

Nuthatch again

Chickadee joining the nuthatch

Woodpecker again

Not quite Bambi and the creatures of the forest but...

I was watching deer eat with squirrels and thought of this scene from Bambi...

Not quite the same but here you go...

Squirrels! Squirrels! Squirrels!

What's Up Doc?

I should name this one Yogi...always after the feeder.

Six squirrels getting along for the moment.

Dean and's your "tree kitty".
