Here's what I saw this week
during a Second Look.
|Even in the winter, dandelions are providing color in the yard.|
|Blue Jay and Downy Woodpecker. The blue jay has just taken off to land on the feeder below.|
|The birds have been using this nesting box to keep warm. There was a little material left from the last nest in the bottom, but I found new feathers on top of that from whatever has been using it.|
|And speaking of nesting boxes, you can see that something has enlarged the hole on one of them. It could have been a woodpecker or an squirrel. I vote for squirrel.|
|This is the first time I've noticed a white-throated sparrow this winter. They travel in flocks, so I don't know where the rest of them were.|
|With the snow, we can more clearly see the evidence of where the deer have been in our yard. Everywhere!|
