Isn't this fun?  I didn't have anything framed that was appropriate to have up during the month of February. I am really pleased with how bright and cheerful "Love Your Hearts" turned out to be. 

Our recent cold temperatures were nonetheless very sunny. 

The cats felt the warmth of the sun trumped whatever the thermometer might have read. 

And it was worth being outside...

...even if they had to tuck their nose in against the cold!

I'm not sure that there is another bird I enjoy watching more than my group of Acorn Woodpeckers.

I've decided that this bird on the lower left is a juvenile female.  She's shown up in the last three weeks or so.  She is so short and plump and has the teenaged bed-head thing going on.  I just have to believe she's a youngster. 

See how her body type and hairstyle differs from the mature female at the right of this feeder shot?

Two birds at the feeder is no longer any big deal.

I don't yell for others to come look unless there are at least three birds. 

That certainly is a wicked looking beak isn't it?

I love that teenage woodpecker.
We have a cat-6 years old, but new to us. He likes to go out on our enclosed, unheated porch on cold but sunny days. He's out there right now. After a while he'll meow to be let back in.
