Our Great Horned Owls are nesting in a former Magpie nest just south of the house. We’ve had frequent visits from a beautiful Red Fox and a rare visit from a Northern Shrike. We have also never seen so much snow here. With frequent winds, the drifts are huge. Also there has always been snow since the first snowfall in October. Usually it melts away from the warm Chinook winds but they were infrequent this winter. It’s hard to believe spriing is around the corner.
