A Winter Storm watch in effect today, tonight, and tomorrow for Ice and Snow. I probably will not be able to drive the hills until Wednesday. I filled the bird feeders this noon. Raw peanuts, suet, nyjer and sunflower seeds and threw out corn for the deer and elk (oh ! and the crows). Took my camera to the back yard a hour later and got a few photos of a Golden Crowned Kinglet and a pair of tufted titmice, which, along with the chickadees have begun nesting. Also saw and photographed a fleeing Red-headed Woodpecker, and some Bluets starting to bloom.  It was 71F yesterday and have been warmer than usual for weeks.

I drove down to Steel Creek today (2/13) and saw a small group of deer (mostly does) and a herd of Elk with the Bull watching his harem. Two of the largest does were sparring (boxing while standing on hind legs). They do this a lots in the spring long before dropping fawns to claim a grazing territory. Its’ mostly pointless, but it is a strong instinct:

Got this photo on this sunny but cold day on Murray Road in central Newton County, Arkansas. This is a female. Their numbers increase through March and April; then they are gone until next fall:

I put a galvanized bucket by a shed this afternoon (2/10). It had a few sunflower seeds and a few oat grans in the bottom. The American Goldfinches found the bucket and began cleaning it out; which I thought was funny – they show no fear. I guessed they were starved and went to town to get more nijer seed and filled the feeders this  afternoon. Not great photos had to grab the nearest camera:
