More snow this weekend. We probably got another 8 inches altogether. Just another weekend birdwatching. I tried to work on a picnic blanket, but ran out of material. Shoveling and birdwatching that was the agenda.
This is a very dapper blue jay.
A crow hung around all day.
I love this Junco. While all the others are gray, he is has a dusky orange undertone.
The first robin of the year. Poor fellow is in for a rough few months. We still have a long way to go before we see earth.
This redpoll looks about as happy as I am.
I am very pleased with my crossbill photo. I have had tons of them this spring.
The crow finally got so brave he landed on the deck.
It looked like a winter wonderland while snowshoeing today. My body thinks it is November. All I want to do is eat, sleep, and quilt. We are supposed to get another week of snow.
I was very thankful last week that the weather was decent and a friend of mine was able to visit. We have worked together for about four years helping students get green cards. We e-mail each other, call, and have even worked together via an internet video chat. We have never actually met. I was lucky enough to finally meet her face to face last week. She came to the hills on vacation with a friend of hers. They came up for supper and a few games of pool. It was a great time. The only bummer was she is an avid birdwatcher and all the birds you see above went into hiding when she came. I'm pretty disappointed about that. Still, it did not deter us from getting to know each other outside of work. We had a great time. I am lucky to know such wonderful person.
We didn't do much for Easter. My husband made a fabulous dinner. We had a good weekend despite it being to cold to do anything. I hope the rest of you out there have better weather and had a great Easter.
