Annas Hummingbirds are here year round, and need extra food and care in the winter.
They will come by every day and look for food, even if it is frozen
they sure like the Nastartium, still flowering
most other birds feed on the ground, use all kinds of bird seeds
most geese have passed on the way south, but some snow geese are still in the air
This mother bear was around the yard every day for the last month, with her small cub. I hope they are hibernating now. She is very protective of her cub, and the dogs and I respect that. I tell the dogs not to bark at her, and they lay down to sleep only 50 yards away, and she stays away from us. Other bears are not so nice, and some ate all my grapes right off the vine.
