I've been very busy this last week with all that was going on with Rocky, but now that he's safely in the hands of the vets, I will get back to preparing for the upcoming baby season. (if you didn't see the update on Rocky, it's posted on Facebook). The snow has mostly melted but the temps have dipped again, so we may yet get some more. Hope everyone had a great week!


Sweet little Chickadee


I must say, this little guardian of the woods sure looks handsome up there on his twig throne!
~Male Cardinal~


"Bahaha! You say they're called earmuffs? Hilarious! Now we're the same!"
~No-eared Nathan~

I had some inquiries about Nathan last time I posted a photo of him. No need to worry about this little guy, his hearing is just fine. I believe the stubby ears are a birth defect and effect only his aesthetics. He's a very happy and healthy little dude!


"Sorry to bother you up there Miss, but I'm hungry down here. Could you spare a scrap of food?"
~Perfect Patti~


"No grass, ok fine. Snow, I suppose. But I draw the line at frozen whiskers!"
~Cheekie~


That's it for today. Thank you for stopping in and for all the amazing comments. If you have any questions or interesting tidbits about today's wildlife, please let me know.

The weather here changes so quickly from day to day, that by the time I'm done getting the next post ready to schedule, whatever I mentioned about the weather in my post, no longer applies!! lol. So I'll just share some wintery photos and state avidly that at one time the world did look like this...


a beautiful Blue Jay...


a stunning Starling...


"Annoyed? Why would I possibly be annoyed dammit!"
~Baby Bush~


"Oh you silly human! I'm not sure I'd even recognize you if you pulled that camera off your face!"
~Teddy~


"Caution, slippery branches ahead!"
~Baby Charlie~


Remembering dear little Marcia who disappeared this summer... 💔💔


That's it for today. Thank you for stopping in and for all the amazing comments. If you have any questions or interesting tidbits about today's wildlife, please let me know.

The Secret Garden

Hello Everyone!

It's been a while since I pulled out my Graphic 45 papers, and I'm so glad I did because I forgot how much I love The Secret Garden collection! I just love the florals in this collection, and you can never really go wrong with bird images I say! lol

It's been a very snowy week and the world is bright with white again!! My dear Rocky has taken up residence in a heated nest I built for him on the patio, so I've been able to keep a close eye on his progress. It's day five of antibiotics and so far I'm happy with the improvements he has made, but he still has a lot of healing to do. OK, enough about that, time for some snowy pics!


"I'm keeping this!"
~Mr Chickadee~


"Did you see that squirrel fly by here! So glad he didn't see my peanut stash!"
~Mr Cardinal~


"You're so sweet to ask, yes I do enjoy the almonds the best, and yes I will take another one thank you!"
~Triangle Tilly~


"I think I'll just wait up here until all that snow melts!"
~Baby Chuckles~


Everyone say hello to the newest baby to the Johnson buffet. This is sweet Baby Precious. I have never seen such a young squirrel at this time of year before. She's just so tiny to be fighting these horrible weather conditions. I make sure she gets lots of healthy treats and fresh water, so here's hoping she finds her way through this true Canadian winter!


A macro of some frost on the window... the closest I've been to the snow in a while. lol
