Wildlife this weekend - Chickadee, Woodpecker, and Squirrel

I walked (part-way) to school today (sunny but very cold) and yesterday.  Tomorrow is Family Day here in Ontario, so a long weekend this week.  Hooray (although no buses at all, so I might walk all the way to school tomorrow or I might just stay home and read and relax, I have not yet decided).

Black-capped Chickadee (Poecile atricapillus)
Took this photo just a few hours ago.  Lots of chickadees around the feeders behind one of the school buildings.  Others were House Sparrows and goldfinches.  Those were all that I saw.

Saw this Hairy Woodpecker along the Parkway Trail yesterday.  It was pecking at my eye-level and fairly close to me.  So I was able to get some shots despite all of the branches in the way.

American red squirrel (Tamiasciurus hudsonicus)
Saw this American red squirrel munching on a frozen nut.  I feel chilly just thinking about it.
