What's outside your window

As I sit here at the laptop, I can watch the snow and the birds at the bird feeders, also watching the squirrels eating an orange while he or she sits on the stump. The birds are having a feeding frenzy , they usually do when it is snowing. I see Cardinals, Juncos, Chickadees, Titmice, Nuthatches, Downy Woodpecker, Hairy Woodpecker, Redbelly Woodpecker, Bluejays, Mourning Doves, Goldfinches , sometimes a starling .

Too cold for the finches to visit my thistle feeders today.
So I'm watching the guys trim the huge pine tree at the end of the driveway. It's supposedly too close to the power line.
The friendly dog from across the road is introducing herself as usual, she keeps bringing the worker guys a stick to throw. It's really quite cute to watch. Until she starts bringing them my kids' toys......

Sigh, I'm at work so all I see are cars. My office window faces out to the parking lot. At least I can see blue skies and every so often, I'll catch a glimpse of a bird, even a hummingbird!

Smile If I knew how to put a picture on I would...

It has actually stopped raining for a little while and by gosh, the sun has come out. I live across from a creek and because we have had so much rain, the bush and two lone pine trees are really green. Two ducks are sitting on my front brick fence and about a dozen white cockatoos are on the grass near the creek squawking with a couple of magpies in tow. It is nice to hear the birds again though instead of the raindrops.
