During A Snow Fall


Our back yard was busy yesterday as it snowed , the birds were chirping and in a feeding frenzy gathering up as much as they could .


                            I like the little Juncos they are so cute and funny to watch .


                              The Downy woodpecker was busy stuffing his face on the suet !



                                         Mr Squirrel was tucked in the food as well !


     Looks like they don't know whether to eat or take cover from the snow or maybe they are doing a bit of both .


              And of course Miggs just sitting there as the snow  gently accumulates on her , crazy dog !

         It is crisp and cold out today  -4°C or 25°F and with the wind chill it makes  it seem even colder . The sun is trying to come out so that will be good if it does I like winter days with sunshine .

                            Until next time hope you have a good day !

I love your new header!!
The juncoes make me laugh when they do that little dance to clear the snow.
We are at -27C with windchill...when is Spring?

So many happy creatures! Also, I love the name Miggs - we might need to add that one to the hopper for our upcoming puppy :) Happy New Year to you!

Great pictures Elaine! We had snow here yesterday, but I have to say, it is still slightly (okay, well a lot) colder up here, LOL! Stay warm! Cheers.
