Life at Boulderwood:
For the Birds!

This winter is for the birds - whatever that means!!  Truly epic in the amount of snow, number of cold days and how hard it must be on the animals.  Today, I share our bird feeder - it is a busy and social place.  Photo Opps are not easy though because the second I try to snap a pic - they fly away.  Here's one I was able to capture during one of our ominous weather days.

And then there's Uni - whose place in the kitchen at night offers her warmth and protection.  She doesn't go to far - here she is near the back door willing to pick up the scraps from the bird feeder.

How certain am I that these birds and all the animals, wild and tame, hope the groundhog was right?  100%!!
