Birds in the Snow

With snow forecasted for our area it was definitely a pajama day.  For me yes, but not the poor birds in the snow. 

There were many Junco's around - you can see one of them with the Female Cardinal in several of the pictures above.  The Blue Jay came around after HWNSNBP threw out some bread, gobbled it up and took off.  The Male Cardinal always seems to know he's having his picture taken and moves around very quickly as if to say "catch me if you can!"

These were taken through the kitchen window while it was still snowing so they're a little gray.  Maybe tomorrow I'll have some brighter ones.


  1. Oh Lorraine, how lovely!! Not the snow, but the birds. Especially the female cardinal - I know the male is more spectacular, but I like the female. Poor birds with the snow, though. I read recently how much extra time they have to spend feeding to keep their body temperature up.
    And Juncos - I've never even heard of them. I'll have to look them up, all the bird books I have are just European.

  2. Oh my gosh these are amazing. I love my birds too. I have been feeding them like crazy as we got snow and they are not used to it.. We don't have any blue jays here and I miss them.. Thanks for sharing these..


It's always so nice to hear from visitors. Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment.
