Who-eee! We finally got some useful snow today! It is wonderful. But the above picture isn't too special, its just to show that the snow arrived.
What I really have to show is two not very great pictures, but they prove that what I had thought I was seeing is true. That crazy bluebird has stayed here all winter. He and his mate were right there on the power line when I headed out on my snowshoes this morning.
They flew off before I had a chance to get pictures of both of them. When I was just about back at the house they both flew over my head and stopped in one of the apple trees. It was really too far for a good picture, but I gave it a try. I couldn't even tell which one I had a picture of till I looked on the computer. Both pictures are of the male.
Well, they have made it this far. Hope they can hang on till spring!
P.S. We spent most of the day without water, but with the help of some friends and some more money (sigh), we now have a new pump, and water again.
