The Week In Seven Photos

Harper and I have been wandering alone through these frigid winter days

equally fascinated by any footprints

or animal prints we come across as proof that we’re not all alone and the rare sighting is not a mirage.

Mr. Cardinal has had a different issue lately wishing for a little alone time with Ms. Cardinal and has been

throwing his wings up in disbelief over all the backyard bird parties.

He’s requested that I cancel the Super Bowl bird party, but since bird watching has replaced people watching and watching Ms. Cardinal’s shenanigans has more appeal than the football game, we’ll be busy again this arctic weekend watching Ms. Cardinal socialize with everyone.

Especially interesting has been her fascination with the double dipping blue jays as she flashes those lovely wings just a bit Too Much for Mr. Cardinal’s liking.

  1. Cardinals and snow together are a visual feast. We had feeders at our previous long-term residence – so fun to watch. Blue Jays are beautiful – but bullies – yet flee when woodpeckers come. Thanks for the smiles through your week.

    1. Thank you!🙂 I’m always amazed on the coldest snowy days the number of birds that visit and this year we’ve been lucky to have more cardinals and blue jays.

  2. Your repertoire of feeder birds is impressive, ACI, to someone like me in Northern California where there are no northern cardinals or bluejays. Your photos of the snow and birds and wintry wonderland are stunning. Two terrific quarterbacks will get some of the attention in our household this weekend. Cheers!

    1. Thank you!🙂 We’ve never had this many cardinals visiting and I love watching them on snowy days. Enjoy the game!🙂


      1. Although I think they’re both fantastic quarterbacks, I will be wearing my #12 jersey in support of the Greatest Quarterback of All Time. I can’t imagine you won’t be watching at least a little part of it….

      2. What’s Super Bowl Sunday without a little football, Harper and I are looking forward to the Puppy Bowl!🏈🐾😁


  3. Never a dull moment with so many beautiful birds to watch. Not a sports fan, but I know it’s a big weekend for football. Enjoy!

    1. Thank you!🙂 Extra snacks for the birds during this cold spell and it was a rare day for the squirrels that they decided it was too cold to leave their nests.

  5. Lots of feathered action here! I suppose we should be happy that the birds are having an almost socially successful time.
    Thanks for the laughs!

    1. Thank you!😁 It’s just a constant bird party in the backyard and Ms. Cardinal is having a fabulous time! I don’t know if you’ve seen those squirrel picnic tables that became a thing during these days of isolation, but I think the turkeys and cardinals have been spending so much time on the deck that they’re going to request a few tables and chairs. Enjoy the weekend!😁


  6. I think birds can be excused from having backyard parties during lockdown. Has a Yeti been leaving footprints in your neck of the woods?🐾

    1. We’re going to need extra snacks for these next few weeks of freezing weather. I was making up stories about those strange footprints that appeared to disappear, but I think a Yeti story would have been more interesting.😁

  7. I love getting cardinals at my feeder. I get many chickadees, too. They all are too quick for me and my camera.

    1. We’re lucky to have the cardinals and chickadees year round who provide plenty of photo opportunities and a large number of blurry shots as they fly away.🙂
