In the winter I feed our other livestock, the wild birds. Zephyr seems to be saying "Do you see what I see" all that bird seed just out of reach.
We get Black Eyed Juncos, click on the pictures for a close up view. After this huge snow fall the temperatures for a week ranged from low 20'sF in the day to 17 below 0 at night. These are the times when living on a mountain is a benefit. Heat rises so our lowest temperature was 2 degrees above 0. Fifteen degrees is a big difference.
and Western Quail. The bird book calls them California Quail but they make their home here in Nevada also. I feel bad for these little guys trying to find feed in the snow and cold.
Ewe's lambs from the spring of '09 checking out the snow and wishing everyone a "Happy Ewe Year"!
