Those birds are tough indeed. That is why they make so much noise singing when it finally does warm up.
Oh my, the little gray has on the original puffy coat.
Oh the bottom picture is really stunning! and yes, VERY cold looking!
oh my...your birds look like they are cold...love that cardinal shot...
Well, i'm shivery just looking at those!
It's definitely feather fluffing weather!
Yes, these fellows look very cold. It's a good thing they have so much insulation.
What incredible photos. I agree that the last one is spectacular. I had to call my husband over to look at it. My daughter in Chicago tells me she's truly had enough cold. She sent me this spoof on the song from Frozen.http://morningnews.wgntv.com/2014/03/03/dans-hilarious-frozen-inspired-parody-let-it-go-chicago/
The sun was shining yesterday so I let the chickens out of their house. They did not mind the snow at all and found their way to melted spots of ground to search for food. It amazes me how insulated they are from the freezing temperatures. The cats are not as willing to venture which allows the birdies to join the chickens and pick through much of the scattered chopped corn.
Oh, that last one cracked me up. Bless their little hearts! We went from short sleeves Sunday morning to icicles yesterday. Crazy!
I think your last photo with his feathers puffed to the max tells the story of COLD! -- barbara
These are wonderful. :)
They are all wondering where the bird food is! (can't see it)
Cold, cold, cold! Fantastic shots!
These are great shots, Tabor. Adorable birds in perfect focus and all that snow falling around them.
Oh dear, it is cold over there. With white covered snow, all of them would suffer, but it carried on, good for the birds.
Glad to hear from you once again. I really like these visits. Come sit on this log and tell me what you are thinking.
