Below Zero




It's cold here this morning at the old permafrost ranch. A cool -9 on the old back porch thermometer. This picture of the Magpie at the feeder shows that deep blue color of his wings, along with that bright black and white. Sure makes for a pretty bird. Fatso, is bulking up for the cold weather in his picture. And the flying squirrels are really more active with the longer hours of darkness that comes along with the cold weather.

  4. It sure got cold in a hurry didn't it?
    I don't remember you having such an assortment of wildlife before. It seems whenevr I log in now I can see a variety of birds; they must be gearing up for winter.
    I know I've said it before, but your pictures are just amazing.

  5. I really enjoy your pics, and seeing the animals and birds. I'm not as fond of those magpies, tho. We get a lot of them and they are noisy and chase other birds away. Nice you feed the birds and animals and can enjoy them all year.
