Today we woke up to our first major snowfall of the season. 8 inches and counting! The birds are out in full force today. We have Common Redpolls at our feeder this year and they are here today in numbers too high to count. I went out to brush the snow off the feeders and they flew over in a big flock and some landed on my head! The feeling of flapping wings around my neck is a new one for me.
The snow is still coming down. The girls are outdoors playing, the chickens are peering out from their coop, and Grace is curled up by the fire.
