BABY IT’S COLD OUTSIDE! – Marilyn Armstrong

Following the snow came the arctic blast from somewhere in the northwest. The sun was out when I got up, so it was a beautiful gleaming woods. The birds, for a change, had control of the feeders … but sneak squirrels had a takeover in mind.

Frozen woods

Ice everywhere

The birds didn’t feel like giving up the feeders and they flew around him until he went to a nearby tree to hang out for a while. Not for very long, though. A determined squirrel is not easily deterred.

Up a tree, thinking about seeds

Getting ready for another assault on the feeder

It’s really COLD out here! Where are those seeds?

Hunger no more! I’m home at last.

  1. Beautiful photos! You get your broiler fixed?


  2. We just had a Chinook – warm winds from the Coast. We’ve had a least 4 this year. Makes the Winters palatable. I lived on the East Coast for 3 years so I KNOW what you endure down there. Hoping you all have a wonderful Holiday Season!


  3. The same weather here.
    Look at that squirrel feeder swing.


  4. The Squirrels were already chowing down when I got up BEFORE dawn’s first light to deal with the dogs..

    I had to open the back door and threaten the squirrels–who were not impressed–until I YELLED at them. Then, they slowly, very slowly backed away from the bird feeders. Finally, they disappeared, just out of sight as I stared them down.
    I’m sure they came right back after I left the kitchen.


  5. there my seeds, I can see competition heating up around the feeder Marilyn, have a great weekend


    • I think they all watch the windows and when we are gone they are instantly back. I don’t bother to roust them in the early part of the morning, but by lunchtime, they’ve had many hours of feeding, so I figure it’s okay to move them along.


  6. It really is amazing how the squirrels get into the feeders.


  7. Good photos. I havn’t seen any ice or frost for at least a year.
