As I watch my wild friends, I often ponder how difficult their survival is. Yesterday I watched an incredible aerial display as a Downy Woodpecker out maneuvered this Sharp-shinned Hawk. Today as the snow began to fall Mr. Junco gave his life that Mr. Sharpie might live another day. I write this as I sit inside by the fire, and the dog chows her food... Wicket, we've got it made...
