A Second Look--February 11, 2016

Winter continues and is bringing more of the same with it. We had another snow this week although there wasn't as much accumulation with only 4 inches. This weekend they're calling for bitter cold temperatures. I had hoped to do some outdoor activities then, but we'll see how it goes. In the meantime, I'm enjoying watching the world out the kitchen window.

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

The snow we had this week was wet and heavy and very pretty.

Now that the snow is melting from the grass, the deer are back in the yard.

Starling. The starling gets white spots in the winter and looks blacker in the summer.

Bluebird. It was really cold this day so the bluebird was puffed up to keep warm.

House finch.

Cowbird and Red-bellied Woodpecker
