Opposite this end is where I throw out seed, stale bread & cookies, etc. and today I've had a neat little visitor: A Downy Woodpecker! He's been here before, just not often. He's tiny, about 5" (adult males get to be about 6"). The larger Hairy Woodpecker (10" or so) is around on the property by the creek side & doesn't come over back here as far as I can tell.
We may have had an inch of snow here and I'm being generous at that! Everything was coated with a thin layer of ice this morning as well. Hubby was morw disgruntled about the weather yesterday than I was! He was going to go hunting but when they predicted 8" for us, he decided not to go since he didn't want to come home from hunting and have to go strait to snowblowing & salting. Ah well.
