Que sera, sera

55 degree weather today!  
Woot woot!

How I wish it was here to stay but, alas, 
I see we are expecting some snow this weekend.  
Que sera, sera ...

It doesn't seem to impact my visitors much though. 
The old regulars are always around.
The Cardinals, Finches, Nuthatches, Blue Jays, Titmice, Woodpeckers ...

 all enjoy their feasts at the feeders.

And let us not forget those who will
always continue to try to reach
the feeders ....

with no luck!

Although I have had to move the feeder poles a
few times after one of the squirrels 
took up flying to reach it from a tree!
Clever little girl!

I haven't seen my little wren for a while now.  
Hope she returns.
Remarkably, this Starling stopped by 
very briefly one afternoon but
I haven't seen him since.
Which is okay by me.  So aggressive!

Others I haven't seen for a few months
are the little chipmunks.
Through the summer and fall the family
had grown a bit,
so I find it odd not seeing them as I did previous years
when the weather warmed up like today.

Somebody that I sorely miss
is my male Red-bellied Woodpecker.
Here's a shot of him below from last winter.
He was so pretty.
You may recall the hawk attack on him that I broke up.  
But not soon enough.

His mate comes every morning and feeds.
Reminding me how fragile life is.
And how brief it can be.
I miss that feathered friend.

Que sera, sera.
