Winter Is For the Birds




Happy Saturday, friend!

 



the birds in our back yard
have picked every seed out of 
every frozen crevice...

now they sit on the fence
and wait for Sall to bring 
his bucket of corn out to them....




we like to keep everybody 
happy around here!





Pheasants,
Chickens,
Robins,
Sparrows,
Bluejays,
Finches,
and 
this Redpole
have all been feeding
rampantly today,
getting ready for the frigid cold
weather coming in the next few days!   



4 below 0 tonight!!
Brrrr! I hope they have a nice warm nest 
to cuddle up in!!

Lisa, much the same weather here, too, and I've been feeding the birds every day. I can't imagine trying to stay alive in this below zero weather, it's amazing how they do it.

Let's hope warmer days are ahead.

Hmm....a vaccine for cabin fever. Now there's a thought.

Hopefully, the cold snap has left you Lisa. We had 40s today, but it was still chilly.

Love the photos, especially the redpoll. Thanks so much for stopping by today -- so nice to see you. :)
