I’m under a Blizzard Warning. Although the snow has stopped falling, it’s blowing and drifting. It’s -15C (5F) with a wind chill of -27C (-16F). A tough time for songbirds, so I’m liberally scattering seed as well as keeping the bird bath plugged in.
It was a lovely morning, the first clear morning in perhaps a week.
This seasons’ dominant colours are grey and brown, which is not entirely bad. I feel more grateful, blessed, fortunate, for each dash of colour such as this, provided by our redbud this spring.
The new Squirrel Buster bird feeder received the Downy Woodpecker seal of approval.
I took nearly identical photos of Lucy sleeping on the couch. Nearly identical because one was shot with flash and one without. The one without flash has warmer colour, is more inviting, with a better feel.
So that is the one you see here.
An American Goldfinch attempted to share a perch at the feeder with a House Finch. The House Finch didn’t budge, so the goldfinch had to leave and wait its turn.
The late afternoon sky after a cold front blasted through this morning.
