Oh oh, now the woodpecker tests his luck! Instead of holes on top, where they are not easy to be seen, he started on one further down

Whatever you think about his doings, he's a pretty guy!



One of the squirrels was checking the new holes under the roof

What a nice walk, Bea, thank you for the pictures :wave:

We had a green Christmas Eve (or more brown, really :rolleyes: ) This is from the day before Christmas.
Image
But yesterday the snow arrived, and this morning we woke up to a white landscape.
Image
I think this is the fourth time we have snow this winter. Each time it lasts only a few days before the mild weather and rain arrives, and washes away the snow away. Only the ice is left, and creates icy roads:(

And when snow arrives, it´s getting busier at the bird feeder..

Bullfinch -Pyrrhula pyrrhula

Eurasian Goldfinch - Carduelis carduelis

It used to be quite rare to see goldfinches here, but they have increased in number, and are now common to see at my feeder.
