In some ways the slightly warmer days have been less fun to walk in than the colder ones because we've had rain many days when the temperatures are above freezing.
I'd rather have snow than rain when it's only slightly above freezing.
The birds in the tree are a male and female cardinal and a sparrow. The bird below is a male rufous-sided towhee.
Below is a little junco in my deck vines.
Next is a female rufous-sided towhee on my deck wall.
I took the next shot on a foggy morning.
The squirrel was watching me get the ice out of the bird baths.
I think bluejays are such beauties.
I find the moss on the roof of a house in my neighborhood to be very beautiful.
I like the different textures of the various tree bark.
The past several years have been wet and a lot of the bark has moss.
I spotted some interesting fungi on a walk but it was drizzling and I left my camera at home. I'll have to try to remember where I spotted it the next time I take the same route for a walk.
I thought the sunset below was lovely.
I think the warbler below looks like he's dancing.
I think the male cardinal is giving me a quizzical look.
I think the female cardinal below is debating joining the male cardinal or kissing the frog instead. Actually it looks like the frog is trying to hug the male cardinal.
As soon as I got the ice out of the bird bath the female cardinal below had a bath.
The bird below is a brown thrasher.
I think the bird below is a mourning dove.
It's easier for me to walk in the winter than in the summer because I have trouble with heat.
Below the gulls and cormorants appeared to be fishing in the same part of the lake.
I like the way the mourning dove looks all puffed out.
In the next shot a red-bellied woodpecker joined the mourning doves on my deck for a cold day treat.
I think red-bellied woodpeckers have such a sleek stylish look.
