A Male Downey Woodpecker brought a quick splash of color to a quiet winter walk.
Seeking Solitude as snow quietly falls.
Wishing you a very merry Christmas.
Robert or Bob to his friends.
Just a few days ago we were intently watching a Rabbit forage on some exposed grass when they suddenly became alert and sat up tall with ears wide open. We thought we had startled her when suddenly and silently off in the distance we spotted this North American Bobcat on the prowl thus explaining the rabbits alertness, and for good reason, as Rabbits are a Bobcats main food.
The Bobcat wandered around for just a moment without detecting the rabbit and quickly disappeared into the forest below. A truly beautiful cat and one we seldom see more than once a year.
In spite of lacking heat the winter sun still warms the day.
Finding a sprig of green grass is not an easy task this time of year.
Hats off to you Kiddo.
Wishing you a wonderful weekend and your own personal sprig of green grass.
Hello there I’m Mr. Blue.
I see you have birdseed.
Don’t mind if I do.
IT’s finally starting to act like winter around here and and with winter the hardy Mountain Chickadees have moved down the hill and are now keeping us company. It’s the little things that sometimes put the biggest smile on your face.
There’s no escaping and no mistaking this time of year. Early December, high noon, without a cloud in the sky, yet the sun casts long shadows upon a male Red-winged Blackbird with wing-bar colors faded to only a pale yellow. Short days and long shadows. A calendar and perhaps a metaphor.
