The frost performs its secret ministry, unhelped by any wind. ~Samuel Taylor Coleridge
Last winter it seemed that the colder it got, the more birds found my backyard. This little fellow landed on a skinny branch and sat there overseeing a squawky scrub jay. Didn’t budge an inch for at least ten minutes, until the jay left. Which reminds me…I need to refill some feeders!
(*Thanks to all who have sent notes wondering where I’ve been. I’ve been working on lenses over at Squidoo.com since August. Will try to post photos more regularly as we draw closer to Spring.)
