In my imagination, this is what many of you may be thinking. And to you I say, “Yes, Virginia. There are more bird photos.”
Yesterday I probably looked like a nut, sitting outside in the cold and the snow, in a wonderfully sunny spot sipping some tea and reading a book. I had a jacket and my hat on and was wrapped in my new red throw blanket, another win from the Dirty Santa game we played on Christmas night.
I had the camera outside with me, just in case.
Although I was saddened to have our travel plans thwarted by the weather, it’s really nice enjoying the time off from work this week. And spending it in the sunshine underneath the bare branches of a dogwood tree is rather pleasant, if you ask me.
I love hearing the flitter and chitter of the little birds at our feeders.
The chickadees are so tiny.
I’m fairly certain this is a female downy woodpecker. You can’t see it, but her beak is quite short. If it had been longer, I would have said she was a hairy. And there is a huge white strip running down her back.
This is a tufted titmouse. They often flock with chickadees, nuthatches and woodpeckers and they are regular visitors to our feeders where they act like the bosses of the smaller birds.
Today, I’m doing some (badly needed) cleaning, hanging out some laundry and plan to once again sit outside in the sunshine. I may go see a movie tomorrow with a friend. Anybody seen anything good this holiday season that you can recommend?
Have a wonderful day, all. And once again, congratulations to the winners of my cardinal giveaway contest!
