here and here. The second link is the best.
It was actually late winter when I first saw them. Then all through spring I heard the fun little tapping sounds they make throughout the forest. Once summer arrived, the sounds of their tapping seemed to go away. I thought maybe it was because all of the other forest sounds were just a little bit louder than them. Sure I heard them every once in awhile, but very rarely.
It wasn't until late this fall that their little knocking noises came back to the forest, and they've continued all through the winter. Do you know what that means? It means that I've apparently found another little bird that loves winter. I couldn't have been more surprised.
Next time you see a squirrel digging in the snow, or a bird taking a snow bath, just remember that they're probably well equipped for this kind of weather, and they might even like it. There are also some animals that you won't see any other time of the year. So winter can actually be very interesting. There's much more life out there in the snow than we could ever believe.
One last unrelated thing today. After my post yesterday about fake computer problems in the park, I've actually developed some very serious real computer problems. My hard drive on my computer is failing fast. This is going to seriously limit my internet time until the new one I ordered comes in the mail at the end of the week or early next week. I'll do my best to get on here when I can, but I don't expect things to go well until I get the problem fixed. I guess that's what I get for faking a bad computer.
