Mouse meets a bird
Edit: the bird in the picture is a common redpoll. They are sub-Arctic birds who aren't always seen this far south but are irrupting in this area this year because the supply of birch catkins -- their favorite food -- is low further up north. There were a lot of them here every day until I stopped filling the bird feeders last week for some reason or other.
