February 19, 2011-Cold, Blustery Day

Early morning. The squirrels were all over the place even though it was so windy.

Some of the birds that braved the wind today. Blue Jays, Starlings and even a little Tufted Titmouse.

This poor squirrel was trying to repair it's nest. The wind had damaged it. She or he worked for a few hours straight on this nest. Hope there aren't any babies in it yet. If babies ever do get in that one and fall, they will surely die. It's a long way up and no protection for them.

I felt sorry for the outdoor critters today. It was so windy and snowy and blustery cold. Quite a difference from yesterday's 55 degree weather. Only in the teens all day today.

I was back to hats and gloves.You have a lot of snow still where it is barely around, I bet last nights rain really washed it off.
