Their good friends, Helen and Jim Thompson joined them with a cow tag which should have given them a slight advantage.

Unerringly they came in search of the waiting treats• The juncos and chickadees enjoy the mixture of wild bird seed, chick scratch and suet and bacon drippings set out for them in small containers. Old "Sam" and his fellow jays are fussier, preferring the nuts put out for the squirrels, but they too will eat the seeds when nothing better is available. Here too are the little brown wrens, no seed eaters these, but good little birds, friendly, seeking warmth and shelter from the snow. The finch are back - or did they ever really leave us'? A small, round, spotted-breasted flicker darts about, then comes to rest clinging to the bark of the tall fir in front of the place. No towhees or camp robbers yet, but we'll watch for them. As each season here brings its own delights, our winter birds are one of the loveliest. Feed the winter birds, and don't forget, in freezing weather, to supply them with water too. Such a little kindness to be repaid so manifold !
