Too cold

Still from Sunday when it was milder. I don't know what caused the gulls to take flight, but fairly soon they returned to roost on the ice.
I love corn dogs.
And the downy loves peanut mash.
Ditto for the brown creeper
The sweet carolina wren has been taken to the Wildlife rescue place. It was not acting "normally"... lethargic, not responding to attacks. Hopefully cause can be determined, and rest in a warm place can restore it enough to be returned to the park.

Catering service. One of the birders brought a bag of meal worms for the carolina wrens.  Finding food with snow on the ground has been hard on the birds.
Now I think I'll have some french toast for breakfast. No worms in the house.

Gorgeous day

It's been a while since I've been out with camera.  Weather either too cold or snow too heavy.  Finally a warm day, glorious.  Something was hidden under the snow, perhaps daffodils?
Mixed up sparrow with twigs for a nest. A nest???? It's only February.
Yes, a nest, house in preparation in strong tree.
I'm looking. Cardinal is looking. Is this a friend from the autumn?
Also friends, man and his dog.
In our backyard, loads of robins. Shot through lobby window.
Carolina wren.  More pictures in next post.  It's nice to be outside after this long pause.
