Autumn Gallery

It’s gotten cold here in Ashland th epast two days.  Cold and rainy.  The chickadees are at the sunflower seeds and suet feeder all day long.  Maintaining their calorie count.  The lone Mountain Chickadee flies frequent soprties among the smaller Black-caps.  Their constant scolding and chatter is almost as pervasive the Steller’s Jays comments on my presence or slothful method of dispensing their beloved nuts and seeds.IMG_0096
