Because of the windows in the back of our house,
we often have feathered "casualties".
Today's poor friend was a ruby crowned kinglet.
It was a young one and very addled.
Almost ready to fly but not quite, it was holding on
quite tightly to Kristin's finger.
Yesterday's casualty was a chipping sparrow.
This one was found in a heap on the patio, and
our resident bird-nurse came to the rescue...
...and ready to fly!
Once the snow melts, our creek is really beautiful in the
spring--and very full.
Christopher snapped these pictures for me yesterday...
...and got a surprise!
We do enjoy the wildlife at the back of our property.
They are mostly attracted to the creek.
As you can see....NO SNOW!
