My Little Snow Village

We've had our first two snow storms
here in Massachusetts . Luckily there
are many little homes and havens in my
yard for the little birds to get out of
the wind and weather .
Today they are all snow capped .
This house is usually occupied by a
little red squirrel living in my yard . He
makes a cozy nest by filling the house
with oak leaves .
This is my feeder where my birds and
squirrels find anything from bread with
peanut butter to muffins & pastries.
I wonder if anyone's huddled in my
gourd house right now. ??

This is my waterfront property near my pond.

The wrens usually claim this early in the spring.

The wrens usually live here too . This house is just to get out of the rain and snow for awhile.
I call this one my condo . A wren built a nest in one of the units , the other two units are still vacant.
Sparrows usually call this one "Home Sweet Home".
Sparrows have occupied this one too . Are you in there???

Hi sweetie!
Thank you so much for your sweet comments...and linking me. I will also list your blog on my "yaya sistas"!

LOVE these pics...even though I am in the deeeep South and love to look at the snow, but sooooo glad it is not something we see very often here.

Lucky birds to have so many nice feeders to pop into and keep dry! And how adorable that you have a squirrel filling up one with oak leaves :-) I enjoyed my visit here today ~ I found you through Monica @ the white bench.

I saw them talking about your snow in Mass. this am. Pretty to look at, but I don't want any here. When I got up, it was 15 with a wind chill of 3 here - to cold for me! Merry Christmas to you and your family . Enjoy your holidays.

Just love the pics of the snow on the bird houses - it freezes my little ole Southern heart. Very pretty. Cathie

These pictures are beautiful. I love all the little bird houses with snow on top. I can just see little bird families in them come spring.

Look at your little bird haven. I know the birds surely appreciate it! With the weather we've had lately they can use all the help they can get!
