a brief reprieve

On days when the thermometer creeps up above 20 F, it’s time to get outdoors and check on how the local wildlife are faring.  There were no Trumpeter Swans visiting the creek that joins the two lakes in the St. Paul reservoir system on this “balmy day”, but the Mallards and Canada Geese were enjoying a morning nap on the trail along the creek.

I think they may have been waiting for locals to bring them a morning snack.

With out latest spate of sub-zero weather, there is very little going on in the backyard.   Even the treats in my bird feeders don’t seem to attract much in the way of feathered friends these days.
