Ravens

Any of you that were in the Still Life class of Pamela's will know my love affair with ravens.  This morning I looked out the back window and this is what I saw.  At least twenty Ravens, hunkered down in this tree trying to stay warm in our frigid snowy weather. I am sure it is very hard for them to find food right now with the amount of snow we have had, and we have a heavy snowfall warning for today 20-25cm which is more than 6 inches!  The temp is in  the -30's with the windchill....ahh gotta love winter in the north.
The trees out front are loaded with snow, and the yard out back...well that's the wagon under there and it is a large wagon that horses pull!  Enjoy the photos.

Amazing that they found you and amazing that they stay around in that weather.

Rhoda, I love ravens too! That is more ravens than I usually see at once. Our house is called Wildberry but the runner-up name was Raven Tree; there is an actual tree on our driveway where ravens often perch.

What a lot of snow! Ours is melting.

Nancy, I 4x4'd to the hospital this morning, it is something else. And no snow plows in site??? Some streets have one trail. Glad I'll be staying in for the rest of the day.

Enjoy being home! We don't have as much snow as you though I try to plan my trips to town around the weather.
