A little later this year but winter has officially arrived here with our first of many snowfalls. Last night 7 homeraised birds had to be removed from our Manitoba maple trees to be put inside the barn for winter. It dipped to -8 C at night. The main flock still had access to the outdoor run but only a few Red Sal Links dare to venture out for a bit of snow. I took this shot of the Northern lights a few nights back a sure sign of the coming season. I expect a spectacular show now any night and will post a better shot then.
