Winter isn't leaving peacefully. It started snowing last night and it's still snowing here. Snow has buried all of my crocuses, pansies, and daffodils that were starting to be pretty and to convince me Spring was really on its way. Looking through some pictures I took during the winter I found this shot of one of the hawks that hung around my back yard most of the winter eating the little birds that visited out bird feeders. It isn't a really good picture, but it's not too bad for being shot through the guestroom window. Does anyone know birds well enough to tell me if it's a Sharp Shank or not? This little guy is my grandson, Calton, who just helped himself to a second cupcake from his big brother's "snake" birthday cake (made of cupcakes). He's still debating whether to eat the cupcake or go after a slice of the more traditional birthday cake, the one with all the candles.
