Birds in the Trees

Common Redpoll

Flying from branch to branch these small finches spent part of the cold, sunny morning consuming birch tree seeds.

Do Not Disturb

Hillside

 Moss and snow have been flung to one side by a mule deer wanting a quiet place to lie down for a few hours.

Red-breasted Nuthatch

We know of three nuthatches coming to the feeders - a family perhaps.

Such a marvelous little bird whose voice rings out from every corner of the forest.

Breezy Afternoon

Birch tree catkins blowing in the breeze

Temperature: -14°C, but much colder with the wind (17.7 km/h NNE).

Every now and again a gust of wind picks up a layer of snow from the ground to send it swirling away, while, at the same time, small clumps of snow fly off the swaying trees, creating a brief flurry.
