Rascal and I are going for a walk like we do every day. Why don't you grab your coat (a warm one) and maybe your snow boots. All we do is walk around the block and along the creek but there's lots to see. In the picture above there's the tiniest little nest. I didn't edit the picture because I was trying to show how little it is.
A crow is following us, scolding us from the treetops, maybe he thinks Rascal is going to find something good to eat and he'll miss it.
Look there's a couple of the turkeys. The one in the lead is lame. The one behind seems to be watching out for her. I had seen the lame one about a week ago and I was concerned for her safety. It does my heart good to see that she has a friend. Girls have to stick together.
I think this is a burl but I'm not sure. It might be just some kind of growth or even a nest in the cedar tree.
The creek seems like it's completely frozen over but if we stop and listen we can hear gurgling. There must be some spots that aren't frozen.
Look! There's a Flicker. Yesterday I saw a Downy Woodpecker. Lots of life out here for such cold weather.
Well, we're almost back home. I hope you enjoyed our walk. We loved having you along. Diane
