It's cold. At or near 20 below zero for a week or so. The birds that come to the feeders are gobbling up everything in sight.
They especially love the peanuts (non salted) that I put out for them. I read once that a chickadee needs the equivalent of three peanuts to survive in cold weather.
I also put out a pint or so of Denali Premium Mix which is a combination of shelled sunflower seeds and peanuts chips. That's favored by all the birds.
Today, I went into Seward and stopped by a place that has multiple bird feeders. I saw the usual suspects and also two woodpeckers varieties.
The hairy woodpeckers are much larger than the downies I get at my house. They like peanut butter. This female has a mouthful of it.
Here's another photo of her after she left the feeder.
This robin was puffed up to the size of a softball, trapping warm air next to its body.
Back at home, a full moon shines over my house.
