The weather has been dreary with snowflakes falling much of the day.
But, it is winter after-all.
So what goes on here on a dreary day?
The Pileated Wood-pecker paid us a visit early this morning.
You can see his size better here.
Man, does he love suet.
He can take out a cake in minutes.
Good thing there's lots more in the freezer.
My chickadees have to fill up before this suet-monster arrives.
I grab a few hugs while I can.
as I call her...
my little bundle of ferociousness.
I think I can hear her count backwards from five... and then she goes nuts.
( but she secretly enjoys the attention)
And lunch at our local tea-room.
I'm not quite the glutton our wood-pecker is.
I shared that ginormous veggie omelette. ;-)
Hope you have some sun today.
But, if not, make the best of it. :)
