Yet another sub-zero night left some interesting patterns of snow and ice crystals on this frozen stream next to the trail yesterday. Today it is not so cold, but it has been snowing all morning, with more forecast for tonight. I keep searching the ten-day forecast for some sign of Spring, but it doesn’t look too promising at the moment. At least we have turned the page on the calendar and February is behind us. Spring will come eventually, but it is hard to imagine it at the moment.
Our bird feeder continues to do a brisk trade, and I finally managed to get a couple of good shots of a male Downy Woodpecker. They are so quick they are usually gone before I can focus the camera on them, and all I end up with as a picture of the suet cake! 🙂
