The Day After

Did you'all see the amount of snow?  Never-mind you weren't here... but it was huge!  I almost called the Army in to clear out this place so we could find some food.  The landowners are pretty good.  S/he put stuff out to eat and clear paths.   There are trees everywhere and some bird houses scattered around too.  I prefer, well actually the Misses prefers the hollow tree we call home.

The day after the snow party, we were blessed with a wee bit more of the fluffy white stuff. So out the snow-thrower came and some paths were cleared, but there is more to do. My bird friends returned and enjoyed some wholesome goodness. The hawk flew in for wholesome goodness too... a meaty Mourning Dove.

Ta for now.  Hope you find your way here again.  We always enjoy your company.

The birds are so handsome and beautiful in your photos. You really bring out their best! Loved the story, too.... It's not always that I can chat with a bird or two.

Awesome snow shots. Not so awesome trying to get rid of the stuff. The fresh snow makes the cardinals look pretty sharp.

Michelle said...

From a photographic standpoint, the cardinal shot is just excellent. However, that first shot, with the stare (!), gave me a chuckle!

I am smitten by chicadees. You have some fine captures of all your creatures here. You sure did get a dumping of snow, eh?

Daniel, these photographs are beautiful!
In spite of all the snow, those little ones look quite content.
I just love the sweet expression on the face in the first photograph.

All beautiful birds, but I'm a sucker for a Cardinal picture. Thanks.
