In the Snow

No sand here to bury his head - going with snow instead. Actually this guy was just trying to dig around and find seeds that had dropped. This is another white-throated sparrow.

And another male cardinal - just hanging out in the pines.
This guy is in my shop: Here

Snow falling soundlessly in the middle of the night will always fill my heart with sweet clarity.

Hard to believe...I'm worrying about the critters being able to find food through it all.

Beautiful photos Kerri! The Sparrow is comical!

Here in snowy Maine, I shovel paths to the feeders and open up several spots down to the ground. Then I sprinkle millet and other seed on the bare ground for the ground feeding birds. I also throw hand fulls of seed under the deck, where it's protected from the snow and wind. There are times that we have nearly 100 birds under the deck during a snowstorm.

Kerri that first shot made me laugh out loud! I love it. :o) I really like your cardinal shots, always! They contrast so well with everything else in nature. I can't think of any critter I see here that is that colour. Flowers, sometimes. ;o)

Love the darling little fluffy sparrow fanny! Your photos are such a treat. I am so enjoying my wind blown cardinal note cards! Love the snow on the little beak, too.

That first photo is hysterical! Bottoms up! We're expecting a lot of snow today, and our bird feeder is filled up and ready for hungry tweeters. :) Theresa

Are you sure that's a sparrow and not a confused ostrich ? :) Nice capure. Love your cardinal too - we used to have one coming around 2 years ago but he must have found your place.
