Of Scenery and "Friends"

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...


...perking up


...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!
