While walking along this frozen stormwater pond at lunch, I noticed someone had just tossed a bunch of cracked corn onto the ice nearby. In very short order, the background became the foreground :) This was the first group of geese to notice.
Ye Olde Chickadee    I spent most of the afternoon putting together a snow blade I got for the lawn tractor this year. Looked like I may actually have needed it by Tuesday, but the storm is moving too far out to sea.    Kim, Thanks for the ID help yesterday. I wasn't sure if it was a juvenile form of a bird I already know or what :) It could actually be the same bird that had the tick, definately same species.
A little too close to her I think ... at least, that's what she WANTS me to believe!
Downy Woodpecker (male) / Pic mineur (mâle)  Nominate subspecies  Picoides pubescens pubescens  Stony Swamp Conservation Area (Jack Pine Trail), Nepean, Ontario  15 March 2008    It isn't often I can get a really well-composed profile shot, and I was more amazed when I zoomed in on the reflection in his eye to see Melanie and I reflected in it.  It is quite a thing to see what the bird sees when it looks at you.

Song Sparrow, I believe. It hardly ever perches and prefers to sneak up through the brush pile to get to the feeder.    I have no idea what that orangish-yellow thingamadigit is on his beak. Seems to be some sort of growth as it has been there for ages.    Will try to get caught up commenting tonight.
So this is why she's still playing the field, evidently she refuses to shack up with him until he actually finishes building the shack :)
