Three squirrels come regularly to our place to check out if there are any goodies. They love sunflower seeds! Here is one of them, having a good time.

I think there are tiny people walking around in my garden. I never see them, but I come across their footprints now and then.

Thank you, Mr. Squirrel. You add joy to my day. I hope the sunflower seeds taste okay.

The little Nisse is waving goodbye to 2016 and wishing 2017 welcome.

We are having this winter’s first snowfall here, it startet snowing yesterday around 2 p.m. and has not stopped yet. That means that the birds appreciate a little help finding food, and we can enjoy them visiting us. Here is a picture taken today, showing one of my favorites, I think it is called a jay in English. Its Norwegian name is “Nøtteskrike”.

At least three different species passed in the same direction at about the same time. A moose, a hare, and possibly a fox. I wonder where they were heading? To the bear’s birthday party perhaps?

Have you ever tried following a moose in this kind of terrain? You’ll probably feel quite small, and after three steps your boots will be full of snow.

If you are a man approaching 60 and still find it amusing to play with snow, that isn’t a bad sign, I hope?
