Nom Nom Nom (the sound of chewing)

I don't know what all the fuss was about this past Thursday afternoon but there was a flurry of critter activity taking place!

There were oodles of American Robins darting back and forth between the ornamental pears trees and the Bittersweet vines.  I suspect they were dinning on the plentiful berries still hanging on.

This grey squirrel was in the Kousa Dogwood tree eating the now discolored and withered berries that had covered the tree earlier in the Fall.  Nothing goes to waste.

Here is a Downy Woodpecker bee-bopping from one tree limb to another looking for something.

The best of the bunch is this female Cardinal taking a short break and posing.

With all this food around there is no need to fill the bird feeders yet.  I'll wait till the deep freeze and snow before offering assistance.
