Posted on February 19, 2013 in Birds, Squirrels This and That for Tuesday This past weekend was the Great Backyard Bird Count. Lots of birds showed up to be counted. We had some pretty crazy skies. I counted for an entire SIX MINUTES before a hawk showed up and scared the birds away. This downy woodpecker was hidden behind the branch and didn’t move for fifteen minutes after the hawk left. We got a wee bit of snow. This post wouldn’t be complete without a fluffy squirrel. Have a great day!
