Cold grey weather has set in since the start of the year. Walking around our neighborhood I see almost no birds at all. We sighted the sparrow in the picture below several miles away in a more open area. Even out there, we hardly saw any songbirds at all. Just a lot of Canada geese and a few ducks where empty fields and still-unfrozen ponds attracted them. Around here, we also see a lot of crows and English sparrows, and the occasional cardinal.

|Leaves would hide this little eye-level nest in breeding season.|
I like the way it has filled up with snow.
|A very chilled-looking squirrel was huddling near a nest.|
Maybe a bird nest, maybe a squirrel nest.
|I hope this wasp's nest is really vacant! It's right in front of my house.|
