I spoke too soon. Last week I was showing off my Spring shoots and flowers. Today I have three inches of snow on the ground, and I am waiting to go to the airport to fly out, with promises of freezing rain later in the day.
I got quite a few photos of the snow falling yesterday. The birds were very active, but my kitties only wanted to stay in, because it was so cold. So, here are a few vistas of white outside my window. As if some of you needed more.
This one is my favorite. A squirrel has taken over the bird feeder, while a Northern Flicker is waiting on the fence. He soon flew over to the suet feeder. Both were on their respective feeders for quite awhile.
At the same time, another Flicker was on my front feeder.
Later, Starlings fought over the feeders, squeezing out the other birds. They came anyway.
They just adjourned to eat the seeds that spilled on the ground. This kept up all day long.
There was a lone Towhe in our Dogwood. His little red breast stood out in the gray and white all around.
And so it went the rest of the day. Little accumulation occurred until the evening, when about three inches of snow fell. I was concerned about prospects for more, because I had to get to the airport this morning. But I was lucky, and there were no problems getting to the airport. I’m also lucky that I leave before freezing rain arrives, and it won’t return until it is all over. In the meantime, I hope you enjoy these few photos I have of the snow and the birds.
PS. This is what it looks like today. Thanks to a photo I received from home. And an ice storm is moving in this afternoon. I wonder if I’ll even get home from So Cal.
