A Second Look--December 5, 2012

Here's what I saw this week during a Second Look.

Amazingly, these mums are still blooming. They have been well protected against the house.

Each one of the holes on this sweet gum ball was full of seeds about the size of a mustard seed.

This red bellied woodpecker is new to the feeder. Mostly we have downy woodpeckers visit.

We still have several branches brought down by Sandy that have to be cleaned up.

I don't remember our purple sage blooming this late in the season before.

Blue Jays

These brown-headed cowbirds were hanging out below our feeder.

A Second Look at this wreath shows reflections of trees and sky it is framing.
