  1. Thank you for the beautiful pictures again this week.

  2. A big fan of Little Grey! And all the other winter warriors.

  3. Jane all your photos are excellent this week.
    You get out a lot taking photos. I enjoy see your photos each week.

  4. Thank you, photographers. You bring so much cheer to so many people.

  5. My vote for the owl ID is Northern Saw-whet Owl. Looking forward to others weighing in. In any case - a great find!

  6. Great way to start the day.

  7. As always such nice pictures. I particularly like the little gray too. But the one of Mosher Falls impresses me as I know the difficulty getting to the bottom of those falls to get this picture; even in the summer time. Great job.

  8. Jane Naliboff you have once again started my week off with smiles! Little grey (and significant other) are simply adorable!! Hopefully you will be able to capture the expectant mother during her gestation and give us a glimpse of the new babies! Thank you all!

  9. Pretty sure the last picture is a saw whet owl. Nice find.
