February 23, 2011-Beautiful Sunny Day

A pair of Crows sitting on a branch on this beautiful but cold sunny morning.

European Starlings. I have too many now. But it could be worse. There's under ten. Later in the spring there will be way too many. They hog all the food.

A few of the birds I saw today.

This female cardinal seems to sit all alone a lot out there. I'm wondering if she is the mate to the one that got killed. She will find another mate hopefully

Some of the scenery and a couple squirrels on the tree and an icicle. Wish those things would go away. They are like daggers when they fall and could kill one of the critters out there.

A male and female cardinal

And this is the female squirrel staying near her nest just before she went into it for the night.

It was such a pretty day even though it started out at 9 below zero this morning. Got up to about 29 by the end of the day. It will be our last sunny day for a while. Cloudy tomorrow and by tomorrow night some snow and then on Friday snow or rain mix.

The critters seemed to be not effected by the temperature.

I let the feeders empty for a few days and put safflower seed out when the starlings move in.They look for other food and everyone else enjoys the safflower.Crows are to bring you wisdom.
