Winter Birdie

redpollFriends, the appearance of this tiny bird means that winter has arrived, three inches of snow on the ground this morning and more on the way, a steady stream of snowflakes to cover all our pine trees in the yard, makes a beautiful sight, but wet conditions for birding.  This birdie is a Redpoll and gets his name from his jaunty cap of red. His food is hanging all around him and he was very busy chomping on these catkins.  I will try to get outside today but it is a struggle to keep the camera dry. Oh well work on my book today.  til Tomorrow MJ
