I realize that a lot of my visitors have had quite enough snow for a while – especially those in the UK, but I wanted to put up some nice pictures of our latest snow job. But first, some bird & squirrel pictures (of course). In those where both appear in the same picture, the crow and the squirrel were actually chasing each other around the tree. If I had thought about it I could have switched to video mode and gotten the whole thing in motion. But, I don’t think that fast now. Anyway, the first six shots are pictures of that weird encounter:
The next three are just the squirrels themselves. Taken shortly after Christmas actually. I had trapped some pieces of bread in the little green cage and just waited until a squirrel got curious. Their antics are hilarious.
The next six are just of Mr. Crow himself. I don’t remember seeing any with marking quite like this. Just a subtle hint of turquoise on the top/back fathers. Almost looks like some variant of a bluebird & crow encounter.
And, finally, the scenes that met us this morning. Luckily we didn’t have to go anywhere at all because the entire county was under a Snow Emergency Warning Level 1, which meant that only 4-wheel drive vehicles could be out until the roads were salted and/or cleared.
There are really FIVE snow pictures. One of them is shy and didn’t show up except for just a small square. Click on it and the picture will show up. Well, shoot. Now it’s there. Go figure.
