Here you can not only see that I need to clean the cobwebs in this corner, but that the Wren just sat and looked at me before hopping off to the window shutters and then along the top of the window.
Jumping from branch to branch in the Japanese Maple, it was getting dark and I had a hard time with the lighting.
Sitting on a branch with the last of the red leaves, he wouldn't stay still for long to let me stay in focus.
Another daily ritual is him going in and out of this birdhouse. I see him doing this all the time. In he hops, and then seconds later out he flies.
Maybe checking out a place for Spring? I guess he heard the birdhouses get claimed early in our yard.
In yesterday's post I said something about the possible snow we were supposed to have. This is what we woke up to on our grass this morning. I think it's mostly frozen hail. The birdbaths did have a layer of ice on them too. None of the plants look like they were damaged and the forecast doesn't call for anymore freezing temperatures for the rest of the week.
The birds were all back out at the feeders this morning, but the wren must be sleeping in.
