It’s snowing furiously and the wind has made a mess of the yard, littering it with fir branches.
It’s cold enough to freeze the hummingbird feeders. I alternate between two of them, thawing one in a jug of warm water while the other is available to the birds.
The squirrels, Lincoln and Della, have been getting walnuts (partially shelled) and sunflower seeds and the odd peanut. But now the jays have discovered the goodies in the woodshed and are giving the squirrels competition.
The video below is about a minute long. I took it from inside the house through the window. The snow is blurring the scene as much as my dirty dining room window is, but I didn’t want to miss the show. It’s not Oscar quality, but it might be mildly entertaining to watch as Lincoln defends his lunch.
