Winter Snow Hieroglyphs in the City


A rather severe snowstorm has been predicted today, but this morning, only vestiges of old snow remained on the deck. Although it is the very centre of Centre City in the midst of urban blight, the wildlife that visits is varied and can be rather astonishing. This morning, a Woodpecker was tapping away at the sacred Birch. Squirrels and finches are regular inhabitants but there have been fairly frequent visits recently by Hawks, Peregrines and Ravens. One morning, a Raccoon appeared on the deck rather inexplicably.

As long as wild animals can be found in Cities, there is hope for our planet.
