Brrrrr! An Early Snow

Well, after the cold rainy days – we had a brief snow overnight… the weather here is always changing so it won’t last, but still it’s no picnic to wake up to.  I headed outside around ten to do the usual bird watching and hoping to see the Catbird again.

Let’s see who was out and about…

And aha! I see the Catbird again, and this time he’s having lunch in my tree :)

After lunch he hopped over to the Mayday tree where I was able to take a couple more pictures through the branches.  He’s such a beautiful bird.

A Rainy Day in the Backyard

It’s dark and gloomy outside and raining on and off all day, still I wanted to see who might be about in the garden despite the weather.  Mr. Squirrel was scurrying around looking for snacks,  a few House Sparrows fluffed themselves up on the branches of the Mayday and a little black-capped Chickadee helped himself to some seeds from the feeder.  It’s a chilly day but we know it won’t last…
