A Second Look--February 17, 2016

It seems like every week is the same these days for my Second Look post--some kind of snow and cold weather and birds. Luckily, there are still new things to see and smile at in all the sameness. At least for me anyway.

Here are a few things I saw this week 
during a Second Look.

After a very cold weekend, snow returned and so did the flicker. See the yellow tail it is balancing with? Well, all the feathers under its wings are the same color. This week, I got to see the beautiful yellow feathers as it was flying away. Unfortunately, I didn't get a picture.

During the snow, Mr. Squirrel opened the suet feeder and got the fresh suet cake out.

He looked around to see if anyone was watching. He didn't want to share.

He started carrying it to a secret hide away when Ward decided that he was going to rescue the suet.

Ward hung the suet back up and Mr. Squirrel had to climb to get his suet for the rest of the day.

The snow eventually changed to freezing rain coating everything with a sheet of ice. The next day, the rains came down and the fog came up.


  1. Those squirrels are clever and persistent little critters!

    1. You are right about that, Lili. They can really be a pest, but at the same time are fun to watch.

  2. We need to see fun things like squirrels when the weather starts looking too gray.

    Sunshine here today! I really appreciate it at this time of the year.
