|The Chickadees were, by all appearances, peeling the skin off the Russian olives and eating only the inside of the fruit. It was quite amusing and adorable to watch. I can't get enough of them holding things with their little feet like that!|
|I managed to snap this robin mid-swallow of a Russian olive. Robins apparently do not mind the skin as the chickadees do.|
|For such a common bird they are sure striking. I admire their white eye ring in contrast to their dark jacket and hood.|
|This eagle is probably about 3 years old. It is starting to develop the signature white head feathers and yellow beak.|
By the time we came home the sunshine had past. It was colder and greyer. Soon it was snowing. Looking out the front door in the evening Matt and I had to ask ourselves: "Was that really just this morning we sat in the grass watching robins?!"
Today it is in the negatives, and snow, snow, snow. I am so glad we took the chance for a warm, sunny walk while we could. It seems winter might finally be here now.
