So, Spring can’t get here fast enough for me. There is still over a foot of snow on the ground and it seems like it’s going nowhere fast. The temperatures are still not quite getting above freezing most days. It’s got to break soon right? I went out to see what birds are around (still mostly winter birds) and to try to get some photographs of them. Before I left the yard a Brown Creeper was coming to the suet feeder. He allowed a fairly close approach and I got a decent photo. I then drove around Hamer and Roberts and found a few other things including Moose, Antelope, quite a few Eagles, and an accommodating Merlin. Here are some photographs.
