Frost Nipped

On this Very Cold weekend (-20 to 0), we got a little frost nipped while looking for critters in northern Minnesota. We had hoped to capture a few photos of owls. However, the weather prevented us from being outside for very long.

Here are a few pics from our weekend getaway.

Red-Headed Visitor

What a day we had at our suet feeder. This Pileated Woodpecker stopped by twice today!

This is a male Pileated Woodpecker – they have a splash of red from their beak to their throat.
