Fall is Out, Winter is In

Fourteen of the photographs this week were shot during two trips over to Glendale Lake at Prince Gallitzin State Park.  Two were shot in our yard and the final three were shot on a trip back home to York, PA.

After losing another suet feeder to the bears, I had to go with this much larger feeder until I could take a trip into the city for a new one.  The bird on the left is a male Downy Woodpecker and the larger bird on the right is a female Red-bellied Woodpecker.

I like taking Grozanick Road to the lake because it runs through some farm land and state game lands and is only used by locals.  The barn shown here is on the east end of the road nearest the lake.

At the other end of Grozanick Road is the Skebeck Farm.

After the corn is harvested from the field farmers go back through with special balers that roll the leftover corn stalks into bales that will later be used as feed.

The only boats that will be seen near this dock area for the next several months will be ice boats, once the lake is completely frozen over.

Normally at this time of the year we usually buy a nut roll for the holidays.  It just so happens that this year we made our own for the first time and while out shopping we stumbled upon this beer.  We thought it would be a good idea for a Christmas card.
