Birds of Alaska

Here is another little visitor to my feeders. The Black Capped Chickadee. They say these little birds have amazing memories of where they stash food because during the extreme cold they must eat to keep their body heat up over night.

Birds of Alaska

The little Red Poles come in Bunches when they come to the feeders. You can see dozens at once in the spring and winter when they are in the area of the Permafrost Ranch here in North Pole. The Hairy Woodpeckers are very neat birds, and I love to hear their calls when they are in the yard.

Flying Squirrels at the Feeder

Just a shot of the squirrels who came to the feeder tonight while I was sitting here at the computer.

Mag Pie Visitor

This one MagPie is visiting quite often now. It loves that suet I put out for the birds. It's gobbling it up as fast as it can. Whew, I won't be able to afford it at the rate this bird eats. It's a big bird compared to the little boreal chickadees and the black capped ones. lol

I just bought firewood for this winter, it went up another 12.5 percent a cord. Good lord.

Man did I look young...and I guess I was back in 68.

Nuthatch Bird

This little Nuthatch visits my feeder every day...It's about time for him to go south I think. They don't hang around all winter.


Just had to post a Squirrel's what this blog is all about isn't it. :-)

Squeakers Video

Here is a video of Miss Squeakers shortly before her release. I sure miss this little squirrel, she's long gone to squirrel heaven but she is remembered.

Fatso's beauty shots,

Here is a couple of Fatso's beauty Shots.

Pine Grosbeaks

Caught a pair of Grosbeaks out in the yard. Very pretty birds, the male is the red one, the other is female. She's just as pretty as the males with that yellow color.

Video of Grouse

Here is a small video of the Grouse


Caught on the Cam this little Sharptail out in the driveway. At first she was just getting gravel I think for her craw. This time of the year they seem to do that a great deal. I think to make sure they have enough when the snow covers everything. Then she started to feed. I watched her for quite a while out the window. They sure are pretty birds.

Boreal Chickadee

These little Boreal Chickadees are such small little birds. I'm amazed that they can survive our winters. They are residents of the boreal forest all year around. They sure like that peanut butter and syrup mixture and the suet I put out for them.

My Yard

All I can say, is they have been at it again. I guess they just can't help themselves, it's either that or I've offended them in some way. The green nice looking lawn needs to have these tire tracks in it, because beauty must offend them.

I hope to hell they get theirs in the end.

Mag Pie Visitor

Here is a shot of a visitor to the feeder I had this morning. Stunning birds, I wish I could have gotten a close up, but they are so skittish that just the sight of me in the window runs them off.
