These sweet little red-capped bird, Common Redpolls are always very welcome in Bird Alley. I didn't see any last winter so it is a treat to see them appear this winter. there doesn't seem to be much variety in their appearance this year as yet. I have been watching for one with a really outstanding rosy breast, but as yet haven't seen any . Of course I am always watching and hoping to see a hoary Redpoll. I have had such visitors before so I shall be watching daily for such an occurance. Its cold here this morning. My oudoors theromometer reads at -20 degrees C. Brrrr.!!!!! That is too cold for me as I plan on going out today to rescue my bird feeders that are almost all covered with snow. But not to worry birdies, I still have two feeders near the house that can be refilled by reaching out my sunroom window.

There are 63 covered bridges in the province of New Brunswick and I love finding them in those 'out of the way' places. I have photographed most all of them, with only about 4 or 5 yet to locate. I still have many photos yet to post on my New Brunswick Covered Bridges blog. If you would like to visit and see more pictures of Covered Bridges, just click on the picture above.
