The view from my perch on the mountain

Snow Burds

A little color around the feeders as a male Cardinal and a Red Bellied Woodpecker stock up in the face of the first real snow we’ve seen this year.

Nope, that’s not dust on the lens. After giving all of my gear a thorough cleaning I tried again and got the same results. Then I realized it was probably due to shooting through two windows and falling snow. DOH!

  1. Great pics. I always enjoy colorful birds against the white of snowfall. Looks pretty frigid up there. We’ve had a very, very mild winter down her in North Louisiana. Glad to see the birds are posing nicely for you!

    • THE BOSS has a fine collection of feeders hanging in the sucker maple right outside our bedroom window (I call it Burd Town) and she loves keeping up with the goings on. Usually some good photo ops for me in bad weather.
