During a snow storm
But yesterday was a different story. You can tell by the plumped breast of the one on the right that it isn't going to be out in the wind for a bit.
Then the hordes arrived.
This is just a few of the many that arrived, lunched, came back for mid-afternoon snacks and left around 3 after their final meal. A few chickadees hang about after that and a few of what seems about a dozen woodpeckers, and the mourning doves who love to inhabit the large spruce on the east side of the house...as well as my constant companions and informants - the jays.
And before long it was dusk, though I had managed an hour on snow shoes, brought in wood for the fire and generally enjoyed the sun which finally made an appearance. I even got some writing done... surprise surprise.
