Snow, Snow, Snow!

What a load we had dumped on us! We were just out in the driveway hoping to shovel the car out, and I was standing by the car, up on the snow. My feet were just about level with the roof of the car! So, we've called for a plow to come and clean it all out. Don't know when he'll get here as he's very busy, but I don't care. I hope this is the end of the damn stuff but I now hear that we are getting more on Sunday but don't believe it will be too much. The sun is trying hard to come out but there are still fine flakes of snow coming down.

I can't count how many times I've been bringing seed out to the birds. The Redpolls are here in force along with the regular Juncos, Woodies, Nuthatches and Chickadees. The Boreal Chickadee is still hanging around with the Black Caps. I saw the Evening Grosbeaks on the feeder and quietly opened the door enough to get the camera through when Roger shouted and startled them back up in the trees. So kept waiting and waiting until they finally landed again. They are lovely birds.

Braving the storm yesterday.

Lots around today.

Poor you, and poor birds too. They must really be relying on you now. Beautiful colours on them.
