Yesterday there was a bit of a blizzard here.
It came on in the late afternoon. The wind was blowing hard enough that the chickadees were being blown off their perches. They are quite the aeronauts, however.
As darkness came on, they were more and more covered with snow.
The snow drifted dramatically.
A guest for supper had nearly to crawl over the bank.
But by morning all traces were erased.
The birds are eating ravenously. They are practically cleaning out the feeders in a day’s time. Amazing.
Here are some siskins… tucking away.
Here is a redpoll. The finches tend also to eat off the ground.
A noble chickadee comes in for a snack.
Here is a nice shot of a redpoll. Click for a larger version.
This shot was a winner, I must say!
