We've been having a cold spell for the past several days.Old-timers in the South know this as Blackberry Winter, which mainly describes a brief period of cold weather that coincides with the time the blackberries are in bloom.
The birds are busy nesting, and visiting the feeders throughout the day.
Consuming copious amounts of their special suet and seed concoction, diligently prepared by the First Sergeant.
The Woodpeckers have become his new BFF's.
And we've had a rare and welcomed visitor to the feeders.
A Rose-Breasted Grosbeak, on his migration home to Canada.
Have a safe journey little friend.
