Well, it's a snowy, rainy, stormy day in Ludlow - but the pictured bird still seems to be able to find time to investigate the new suet in the feeder - so something positive seems to be happening (click the picture to get an enlargement).
This is the first post of our new "Black River Today" blog in collaboration with the Rutland Herald.
Let us know what you'd like to see and read about in this blog by selecting the "COMMENT" option and sending us your feedback. Some of the material here may be found in my personal blog (www.viewfromludlow.blogspot.com). But most it will be unique to this site. To make it easier to reference this site, you can bookmark it as a favorite in your web browser.
We'll be travelling to Turkey, the Aegean, and Greece shortly and will try to update this site with some local photos from the area (so long as WiFi is available!). Come May, we'll start maintaining this blog in earnest.
