Hard to find food in winter.
Helping them survive.

Brightens my yard and my day

It weighs less than half an ounce.
Tiny miracle.They actually only weigh 0.39 OZ, They are very active at my feeders. Apparently, they will hide food and remember where it is hidden and go back and find their hidden caches at a later time.. Truly amazing creatures surviving in harsh winter conditions.

Can’t look out windows.
Must shovel snow away.
Want to watch the birds.

Two bucks lying down
Time to rest in the deep snow
