Snowy Day, Backyard Birds



Snow started early this morning. We got about 8 inches of it. For most of the day I could barely see the lake from our windows.


The birds don't seem to mind the snow, although the squirrels stayed away. I put out some extra suet and seed for our feathered friends

  2. Yes, I shot them through the window. I only went outdoors today to walk the dog and get the mail. Well, I did snap a few pics when I went out to the mailbox. I must be addicted to photography.

  7. O I do love the little bird at the top - somewhat like the coaltits that frequented the feeder in the rosebush I used to have outside my window at our last house - one of the few things I miss about that.
