When I woke up it was just before the sun rose and the sight that greeted me out of my bedroom window was beautiful beyond words.
The frost has returned.
I love the sight of a cold, frosty morning here. Especially when it’s this frosty.
I feel like if I am going to live where it’s wintery, I want it to look the part and not just feel it, you know?
I hurried up and did my rounds, feeding and watering and making sure all was well and good before I came back in to warm up my toes and nose.
I watched as the sun rose from my upstairs view in the bay window and just before it did, from across the street I noticed a flash of red wings as the flicker I’ve been feeding flew in from who knows where to land on top of a pine tree.
Then I noticed another one in the big poplar tree behind him! It was a bit farther than my zoom could see in the muted light, but I could tell what it was by the red on his tail.
In all, there were four within sight of my feeders this morning!
I’m not sure if that’s a good thing or not, the hubs says they are just woodpeckers and woodpeckers are destructive.
I’m not sure about all that, I just think they’re beautiful birds. As beautiful as the early morning frost! 🙂
