Early morning snowfall on the 1st of February. Looked almost like rain coming down. The hawk is up on a branch just waiting to catch something. A couple of squirrels went right up there and chased him away. I didn't get that on camera. They seem to be doing that a lot lately. Because they are building nests now for their babies and don't want the hawk around.
All the birds taking refuge in the bushes.
Waiting for the snow to let up a bit.
The squirrels and Cardinals. All snowy.
A male squirrel trying to grab hold of a female in the top right photo. An injured squirrel in the bottom photos. Maybe he fell out of a tree or a female bit him. But he was bleeding pretty bad for a while on his ear and the side of his head. Lots of them get hurt at this time of year. Especially because it's mating season they are chasing through the trees so fast.
A male cardinal in the falling snow. And a House Sparrow just coming in for a landing.
A squirrel checking out the territory to see where that hawk went. The hawk is hiding up there on a branch again. This was the morning of February 2nd after we got a few more inches of snow.
Cardinals and sparrows in the bushes and a pretty little Tufted Titmouse.
This is that injured squirrel. He's healing up well.
A squirrel sitting in the bush eating a nut. And some pretty BlueJays.
The snow outside my window last night and a lonely leaf getting blown around on top of it.
