First Snowfall

 Stormy weather moved in last week and John worked to finish getting the bees ready for winter. A barn owl insisted on sleeping in our elm tree during the day. He might have been roosting there all summer but we didn't see him until the leaves started falling. The duck enjoys the pond before it freezes solid. We woke up to snow this morning. Half the chickens hatched this summer so they freak out when they first see the snow. They can't figure out what it is.

Midnight and the chickens

Banty rooster crowing

Horses graze unperturbed way out in the pasture

Quail look for a handout

Greetings from the high desert
