The Flicker had been on the deck picking up seeds. Now he is either hiding them for later or studiously opening a sunflower seed.

The winter sunsets really are spectacular. January 15, 2016
Snow again on Tuesday, January 19. Even though we had cleared the deck and put seed down, the snow came so heavily the little snow birds (Juncos) had to search for breakfast.
As did one of the squirrels.
