First Day Of 2015

After a week of unseasonably mild weather, this section of the 'Great White North' is not white at all on this, the first day of a brand new year.
 

Ice and frost on the morning of January 1st, 2015.



But despite the lack of snow, today is well below freezing and outdoor folk in furs and feathers are very appreciative of a hand out.

The starlings have left no suet for this male Downy Woodpecker.


A male White-breasted Nuthatch is also disappointed.


Reddy on either a grocery run or a bird chasing caper.



Even the very wild tomcat I've named Oscar, is less careful about being seen in public. He has been finding tasty morsels in his alms dish and is increasingly considering me as a soft touch.

 
Feral tom, Oscar, allows a rare public viewing from a window.




I hope 2015 brings continued delights to all who share this splendid planet. Cheers everyone!
