Readers capture wildlife in winter

January 10, 2014 at 01:27 AM

The State Journal-Register


Readers continue the them¬¬e of wildlife in winter in this installment of Voices from the Wilderness.

Diane Theodor captured this squirrel in a pleading pose on her deck railing in Chatham.

“My squirrels usually sit with hands in a prayer position but the past few days this has changed to a ‘please pass the mittens’ pose,” Theodor said.



Nanette Phillips, who lives on the edge of Chatham, captured this downy woodpecker at a suet feeder decorated with icicles.

“I snapped some pictures of the downy woodpeckers birds feasting in this winter wonderland at our Chatham home,” she wrote. “Enjoy.”



Of course, everyone has to eat, including hawks.

Karen Alexander of Rochester photographed an adult Cooper’s hawk with its prey.

Notice the red eyes of the adult Cooper’s hawk. Juveniles have yellow eyes.



Lastly, Nate Isbell sent this picture of a northern cardinal brightening up a winter day in Peoria County.
