First skiing this winter. Cold and beautiful day, but too little snow to make it a great experience❄️

Autumn Series - Deer Portraits
Further explored the area where I'd found this herd this past weekend, and found a section of the forest that has minimal human presence, but is crisscrossed by fresh deer trails, along with evidence of coyotes and possible wolves (massive stag carcass with huge antlers intact). On the way back to my car, a local and I started chatting and he mentioned that there are 3 herds of whitetail deer in the area, confirmed the presence of the predators and hinted at a family of foxes close by. I have been searching for a nature rich forest like this for the past year, and am thrilled at the opportunity to explore it further!

Look up. Worth the neck ache 🤣
An Evening with the Muppet Bird.
If Jim Henson had ever created a real live bird, and not just a Big Bird, I imagine it would look a lot like the evening grosbeak (Coccothraustes vespertinus), with its huge and expressive yellow eyebrows and absurdly large beak. That beak allows it to crush and devour hard-shelled seeds that other birds cannot. It's something of a seed shark, with smaller finches like pine siskins and redpolls following in its wake to clean up the seedy remains. This year is looking incredible for finches. An irruption year for certain. The kind lady who feeds these finches in her backyard feeders feeds an army. Over 75 of them waited their turns around us, uttering their muppety, churry chirps. "It has always been difficult to get Big Bird to be very pretty" - Jim Henson. Well, you nailed it with the evening grosbeak, Jim. RIP.
