This is Harry, one of our Hairy Woodpeckers (Picoides villosus). It's seldom I get the opportunity to shoot him up close, as they are very wary and unlike their smaller counterparts (Picoides pubescens), they intensely dislike the shutter noise. I had the window open, and was astonished he stayed long enough for me to get some nice shots of him.

I can now put seed out directly from my front windows. This was about an hour ago, the seed is now covered by snow.

We've had another 20 inches (50.8cms) of snow and it's still coming down. The interstates are shut down, our vehicles are completely buried (except for our truck, and it's getting there) and we are most snowed in. The weight of this latest snow has collapsed the cat kennel roof. I went out the back door to get a look and pulled my yarrow up out of the snow, hence the pic. I don't have the heart to post more pics of vast piles of snow and the resultant damage.
