Even the birds are feeling the effects of this Arctic blast. When it is bitterly cold out we stay indoors, enjoy the fire and some good homemade cooking. The critters who live on the other side of the glass don't have that option. 

This guy looks to be doing OK, cold but OK. He's fluffed up his feathers and tucked in his claws in an attempt to keep everything warm. He eats copious amounts of the seeds we put out and conserves his energy by sitting for long periods of time.

If you've been feeding the birds don't stop now,  many depend on you for survival.

As for me, I'm glad to be inside by the wood stove enjoying Mary's homemade soup.

Stay warm and safe everyone ............. a warmer weekend is coming.
