Awww Monday! January 9, 2017 Brrrrrrr!

Hammond Pond is quite frozen!

One of our local California Gray Squirrels

One California Acorn Woodpecker...


These woodpeckers are very gregarious.  


  1. Awww, look at all those precious little critters. Trying to find stuff to eat and to stay warm. I know this is what they do and they are fine, but you just want to let them in to get warm. Miss Lucy wouldn't like that though.

    Have a fabulous Awww Monday. Big hug to you and Russell and lots of scritches for Miss Lucy. ♥♥♥

  2. Living creatures against the bleak landscape. Great choices.

  3. That's a lot of woodpeckers.

  4. Great winter pictures, even though they make me want to bundle up.

  5. How glad i am i have a house and a heating pad!

  6. love those woodpeckers! all we get in the winter are downy and hairy woodpeckers

  7. Great photos, I have never seen an acorn woodpecker.
