Hello, friends. It was a good day for woodland animal viewing at our house today. My son, Andrew, and I watched a fox dance across the ice in the marsh this morning. He had a gorgeous tail. We even watched him sit down for a bit. The fox-spotting set our dog, Ingrid, into a bit of a tizzy so we went on a long walk to help her settle down. And on our walk, we spotted a pileated woodpecker and heard him call. What a beautiful bird! (And hardworking, too). I wish I had my camera handy for photographing these creatures - ALAS!
This afternoon brought a lovely couple to our birdfeeder:
And then a chickadee joined in:
Aren't they charming? I didn't want to step too close with the camera as the cardinals are a bit skittish. Chickadees are cheeky and don't seem to be afraid of much of anything or anyone.
A good day all in all. I hope that yours was splendid.
