If you click on this fellow above you can see him 'up close and personal', like they used to say in the olympics.
Here are a couple of sparrows who were chatting noisily too. The Flicker came back to roust out the robins in his territory.
And, my favorite, the quails. They are so dear to me because of their ridiculous gait and behaviors that have endeared them to me.
I will also tell you that I was awakened last night about 9:30 pm to the loud squawking of the geese flying north overhead. Maybe because it was dark and snowing they needed to encourage one another. We DO have about 4 inches of new snow this day.
