I awoke this morning to fluffy white flakes drifting by my bedroom window. Overall, maybe 1-2" of snow cover on the ground. Just enough to make it pretty outside.
Took a break from work this afternoon to enjoy the birds in snow. We have a couple White-throated Sparrows still hanging around. This one was tucked back in one of our brush piles - could just barely see it through all the tall grass.
Juncos are plentiful and this one was munching away on seed heads from a wild aster right outside our living room window:
Throughout our acreage we leave several brush piles for the birds to use. They provide cover and roosting spots for the birds and are always busy places:
This junco has quite a bit of reddish brown on it. I got a better look while it took the time to scratch and preen:
So glad snow is here!
