March 5, 2015 – the woodpecker and the weasel

Today’s PHOTOS and VIDEOS

Notes for today: This blog author has finally decided to succumb to the latest viral web phenomenon, the woodpecker and the weasel, with the hope of, like everyone else, getting more hits. So this least weasel (Mustela nivalis) jumps on the back of a European green woodpecker (Picus viridis) for a free ride, supposedly. Time will tell if it works. On the weather news front, we may be getting more snow, or not. There are two new Reservoir Dogs today: Bailes, a German Shepherd, AND Roland, a Boston Terrier.

Stabilicers
are my preferred shoe attachment for making it safer to walk on ice and snow during this time of year at Fresh Pond Reservation. They are light, flexible and easy to put on and take off. You should know that buying this product from Amazon will result in me being paid a small commission. This item won’t cost you any more when you buy via this link. You will, however, be supporting my Fresh Pond Reservation project. This will help buy new cameras, pay for internet services, and kibbles for Jasper. You can also support this project by buying a Birds of Fresh Pond Reservation Calendar.
