What the snow will bring

We are driving up to our log cabin this afternoon. There's a lot of snow (our area has already had 70 inches of snowfall) and it will be very cold. I can't wait to see my "log cabin birds." Will the eagle fly by? Will the pileated allow me a better shot of him? Will the chickadees continue to eat from my hand? I am anxious to find out!

Shelly: Really neat shot of the woodpecker. 70", I thought our 18" was a lot. You must be in a lake effect area.

Stay warm. Don't envy you with all that snow but then again the U.P. of Mich. always gets lots of snow.

Gee, just a little bit of snow up there, eh! I hope it brings lots of wonderful surprise visitors on wings and four legs. Looking forward to a full report!!

Sounds so relaxing! Are you sure you won't turn it into a winter birding paradise bed-and-breakfast? So, so, so jealous of the snow you get up there!

I know it will be beautiful, but unlike Lynne, I do not envy you. This southern girl is not a snow bunny!

Nice downy photo..That is much more snow that we have had here...

The Birdlady said...

Brrr..What beautiful photos - The downy doesn't seem to mind the cold - and I love that tall, skinny tree with the snow piled on the branches.

A log cabin in snowy woods with logs of birds around. Sounds ideal to me!

My daughter lives in Grayling and said they are indeed having a white christmas. I hope you find all your birds and thank for sharing this wonderful Downey with us.

Is that a Hairy with the black bar in the middle of his red? The same one Richard keeps talking about?
