Critters Up Till January 27th 2011

This squirrel is eating a walnut and he is also burying one. I buy the nuts after the holidays when they are on sale. The squirrels love them of course but then start getting too aggressive because they want those kind all the time.. They only get these treats in the coldest weather.

A few of the birds in flight or landing and a Junco.

Cardinals, BlueJay, Starling and a pretty little Tufted Titmouse.

Squirrels and a Vole trying to fund some left over nuts in the snow. He's a fat one and gets plenty to eat around here.

A squirrel enjoying his food.

I might want to fight with the squirrels for those walnuts.

The straight on shots of the squirrels are fun, they have such unique colors.There is a photo essay each month that is on my newest post I think you would have fun with.If you go to the site you can view all who signed up.I played with a timid titmouse the other day. They flit off fast with any sound or movement, even when I was in a blind.

rainfield61 beat me to it with the walnut comment Ginny, I absolutely love them!! :)

I have just caught up with your last few posts, my goodness it has been cold and snowy there! It does make a lovely background to your photos though. The squirrel pics are so sweet and I do enjoy seeing your birds, the vivid colour of the Cardinal always amazes me.
