Happier Now

Jolly Junco

2 Birds On A Wire

With 12 inches of snow, frozen pipes, -35 wind chill, and livestock indoors, it feels a lot like growing up in an old Iowa farmhouse.
The kids and I have had fun making forts and lying in the snow.  Everything is quieter in the snowy cold except the birds, who are appreciative of the new bird feeder i received for Christmas.
Some birds we saw today:
Dark-Eyed Juncos
American Tree Sparrow or Song Sparrow
White-Throated Sparrow
White-Crowned Sparrow
The chickens seemed fine in the cold, but last night Chip was unresponsive, so I thought it would be best to put them in Judy's kennel.  She seemed to perk right up.  They are in tight quarters, but laying their eggs in the bucket like good girls.
