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!"

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.
