Last weekend I took a few photos out the window because it was just too cold to venture out. The high temps have been in the mid-teens F (~-12C) or colder, with lows below zero F (-18C). But the sun was shining brightly for part of the weekend when I took these shots.
|Male, Red Bellied Woodpecker|
|Male Downy Woodpecker|
The woodpeckers have discovered the "Finch Lovers Blend" that I been putting in the Nyjer feeder. I have seen red-bellied, hairy, and downy woodpeckers all spending alot of time at the feeder.
|A red-grey hybrid?|
These little squirrels are bigger than reds and smaller than greys. They have a fair amount of red on their backs and tails, but have the overall shape and demeanor of a grey squirrel. Not sure if they are hybrids. I will have to do some research to find out if that is possible.
These last pictures are of 3 white-tailed deer bucks that seem to hang out together. Normally bucks are fairly solitary, but these guys seem to be buddies.
|I didn't get a good picture of the buck whose rear end is showing, but it had 3 points on one antler and 4 on the other.|
It was coming on dusk when I took these photos, so they aren't the best. I have seen the bucks together several times in the evenings. As the days begin to get longer and it is actually light when I get home from work, perhaps I will have better opportunities for photos.
