Thank you for stopping for a closer look. Any and all comments are welcome and appreciated.
This Raven was sitting on a large tree stump just outside our back door. He had his head buried in the snow trying to get what ever was in there, but looked up at me as I was shooting the images. The weather here this morning is -45C. It amazes me these hardy birds still are able to function in this weather without the luxuries that we enjoy to help keep us warm.
Have a great Monday and new week.

I awoke to squirrels in my wood burner's chimney flue this morning trying to find what ever heat they could latch onto.Seems they pulled back the mesh wire that was blocking their entry and got inside to the second level which is a solid grid that can't be moved. They risked being BBQ but all ran out after I added a few logs to take out the morning chill...I have been throwing apple chips and day old bread outside for both the birds and squirrels as even though they appear okay I'm sure they are still hungry ..You got a really awesome capture of this Raven here Jim!
Stay Warm and Think Spring!

Cool shot Jim, nature and evolution did a pretty good job of adapting animals to their environments. Didn't do so well with the Human species though, the only species who modifies their environment to suit themselves, probably be our downfall.
