Working on It

Don't give up.   I'm working on another post.

I was on a real roll a couple days ago but then the electricity went out for six hours.

The other excuse is sun.   Sun and a frozen crust on the snow that I can walk on to find birds.

Here are a few to keep you company.

This is Dave's Creek where the American dipper lives.

Once called a water ouzel, the dipper holds onto rocks with its strong feet and can walk underwater.

Dipper is examining the menu for today.

Must have been something yummy because he's completely underwater.

Camera hog.

Common redpolls.    So darned cute.

A few more redpolls.


  1. We would NEVER give up on you Jeanne. We know there is always something spinning in your head and just about to come out through your fingers, as in, writing. I cannot begin to tell you how many times we say to one another, "Jeanne is just AMAZING!" Glad to hear you are getting some sunshine. Looks like the temperatures are coming up, but we keep seeing snow in the forecast for Anchorage. That should end soon. Our best to you and your bird friends!! Hugs. Patti and Cap

  2. Talk about feeling like perhaps people are giving-up-on-you. I feel the same BUT my outages are more often and far longer than are yours. Oh sigh. Cap and Patti
