Here is the female Pileated grabbing some suet. You can see bits of snow on the suet feeder.
Notice the thin coating of snow on the branches of the nearby trees. That was all the snow we got.
She really digs in, making a hole in the suet.
The little Pine Siskins appeared to be very cold. They really ruffled their feathers in order to keep warm.
The big question is this: why in the world do they sit on the high deck railing totally exposed to the cold wind? There are plenty of pine trees that would offer some shelter. Why not choose them? Aren't they called PINE Siskins?
If you are having a holiday from work today, I so hope you enjoy it. If not, I hope you have a good day at work. And if you are retired, I already know it will be a good day.
