January Blooms and a birdhouse abuser

  We are having a string of warmer and dry days this week. Just in time for a new deck (more on that later). I did a walk-about yesterday and noticed several blooms - Arctostaphylos ' Sunset' (Manzanita) Galanthus nivalis (Snowdrops)   Hellebore 'Merlin' And something not so pleasing - I discovered a birdhouse that was just put up last fall now looks like this! - This has happened before so I wasn't completely surprised. I posted this photo to a local birding group and got a multitude of answers but most of them stated that it is likely a squirrel. That makes sense as we have a lot of them. Flickers and woodpeckers was also a common answer. That would be a possibility but I only see flickers and woodpeckers at our feeders periodically so I don't know. I was advised to attach a metal ring around the hole.   Text and photos by Phillip Oliver, Dirt Therapy
