Snowing, blowing and chilly. Winter has arrived. On Christmas it began to snow but now it is just downright chilly -7 F (-21C) this morning with light snow and a bit of a breeze. Tonight it is forecast to be -14 F (-25C). Time to throw that extra blanket on the bed.

White Breasted Nuthatch


A few weeks ago and just a minute or two after remaking that there seemed to be no birds in the woods this particular afternoon, we came across this white breasted nuthatch doing his thing on an old cottonwood tree. Looks like he found himself a nice meal but was it a nut, a grub or some type of insect larvae?
