Last week while the ground was still really covered up with snow,
and the temps were below zero for several days....
I noticed a little scuffle going on
out on the deck.
Two little birds were fighting over a sprig of fake berries
from this arrangement right outside the back door.
They had already stripped the cedar branches pretty clean,
and were still looking for something to eat.
Apparently they were scoping things out
for future housekeeping!
