How quickly the weather can change. I was away for a few days and got home just in time. Imagine if I’d had to drive home in this snow.
Last week this red-shafted northern flicker was just checking out the fence. At that time he could still enjoy some bare ground to pick over for grubs.
And he had time to show off his lovely markings.
But today with the snow I was pleased to see him return and find the suet blocks by the feeder.
He dropped one of the pieces of suet …
And then had to sit on the ground to finish his meal.
Do you feed the birds? Have you seen any special ones?
