Brrrrr… It’s snowing!

I love the snow!  We had a little yesterday, but it is really coming down today.  And our backyard has been hopping with birds all day long.  Today, we have seen the following:  Varied Thrush, Dark-eyed Junco, Song Sparrow, Rufous-sided Towhee, Common Bushtit, Black-capped Chickadee, and Chestnut-backed Chickadee.  This morning, I went outside and stood on the step under the eaves, and got some great photos.  Here they are.


This is the East side of the yard.  Everything has a cap of white snow on it. I really like the concrete pagoda under the vine maple tree-it looks so Japanese.  It was a wedding present.


That’s a female Junco on the seed feeder.


How about the two Juncos and three Bushtits on the hot-pepper suet feeder!  The “mountain” of snow is the barbecue.


This Song Sparrow camped out on the suet for a long time.  Nobody challenged him for his spot, while we were watching.


This is the view from the clerestory window in our family room.

And, finally, here’s a little video.

The first day of winter isn’t even until tomorrow.  Happy Winter, everyone!
