Q: I've noticed that five of my uploads have " Hot" in front of the caption. Why are they caterogized that way ?

A: Do you know?

Forget the pear tree bit, although they do grow here.. I came across a little flock of birds on my way home from the store yesterday evening so I backed up my car and got my camera out. At first I thought they were Ruffed Grouse but it turns out they are Gray Partridge, also known as Hungarian Partridge. They were the only signs of wildlife I saw on that drive as it was already -35 C at 5:00 pm and wildlife don't move around much in such frigid cold.

This was my first sighting of these beautiful birds so it was a very special capture for me..

    .Incredible image of these Hungarian Partridges who looked puffed out from the freezing temps..I went out to feed our wild birds here this morning and was glad to get back in the house as it is frigid outside...My keyboard is even cold...Stay safe Heather and keep warm.
