Deborah Godin said...

I like the quote about nautre listening to the snow. And the woodpecker certainly looks attentive!

T and S said...

You got the fella in a beautiful pose and the snow makes it even more beautiful

Gardener's Garden said...

Ouch! I hope this is at the cabin, we got some today but it didn't stick. Nice shot of the Downey.

Art and Poetry said...

Beautiful photos!

Eve said...

Nice quote Shelley. There is something to be said about an early morning snow that muffles every sound but the sweet call of a chickadee (or in your case a sharp cry of a Hairy!!!).

Jayne said...

Oh, she's beautiful! I've never had one at my feeders. What a treat to see her Shelley. :c)

Denise said...

Pretty Hairy! She looks lonely, but lovely out in the cold...brrrr

Shelly: Nice pictures of the wooodpecker against the snowy background.

Shellmo said...

Rambling - more snow is coming! :-)

deborah - I was hoping the quote would match his expression!

T&S - thank you!

hi Gardener - this woodpecker is the hairy - I was actually surprised he got this close as they are shyer than the Downy.

Art & Poetry - thanks!!

Eve - ha,ha! You called that one - he was noisy - so was his buddy the blue jay!

Jayne - thank you - I'm used to seeing them on the suet feeders so it was nice to see her on this feeder.

Denise - her hubby was munching on the suet cakes!

Fishing guy - thank you for your kind comments!

Nice Hairy. We have Downy, no Hairy. No snow to count much either.

Snow makes such a nice backdrop for bird pictures. Here's hoping for a snowy winter down in North Carolina!

Shellmo said...

Birdlady - then can I be the snow princess??? :-)

Tina - thank you!

Leedra - we have a pair of each right now!

Muse - Maybe I'll knit him a little scarf too! :-)

NC - I agree!

KJ - Sure you wouldn't trade your palm tree for a pine tree???!!

Dave - I hope some winter flakes come your way!

Shell, you have the BEST bird photos!!! Great post.

You've had more snow than we've had. Are you walking around snapping tons of fluffy weed seed photos too? They sure photograph well. I had fun today. Hugs, JJ

I'm lovin' seeing your beautiful snow pictures. The Hairy looks wonderful on the tree! The birds do love the snow and come by the numbers when it blankets the backyard.

Daisy said...

Wonderful photos, Shelly. No snow for us here yet, and I'm in no hurry for it either. It looks pretty in your picture though. :D

HANNIBAL said...

The snow looks beautiful, but you can keep it! The woodpecker shots are terrific, especially with the snow!
