Snow and Birds!!

Winter storm Euclid which has affected a large portion of our country moved through Ohio today giving us our first major snow of the season. By the way......since when are they naming snow storms like they do hurricanes?
 Fortunately I had the day off and was able to enjoy it from the comfort of my home. I like snow on days like this, but tomorrow when I have to get out and drive in it, it's not so pretty anymore!

What it looked like this morning.

By mid afternoon we had 5 or 6 inch's and it's still falling.

But the best thing about snow days is all the birds that come to feed.

Striking the perfect pose. They are among my favorite bird to photograph but I don't know how many pictures I take only to have them come up empty or a blur because they have flitted away.

Like this:)

Carolina Wren

A Female Cardinal stops by for a drink.

Male Cardinals are easy to spot when the ground is covered with snow and the tree's are bare.

House Finch

Black-Capped Chickadee


American Goldfinch

I counted at least 17 birds in this tree but there might have been more.

I think these were all House Finches.

Just before dusk I loved how the Christmas Tree lights reflected through the window.
Have a great week and a Happy New Year!


  1. Beautiful photos. Yes we in Ohio sure got snow dumped on us yesterday. They asked people not to even be out in it. Looks like it went straight to you.

  2. Hope you had a wonderful Christmas Pearl. Wow you did get a lot of snow up your way. We had mostly freezing rain here with just a coating of snow in the end of the storm. The pictures of the birds are so great. Be careful out there.

  3. Beautiful, beautiful photos! Thanks for sharing them!

  4. Ooh! It looks lovely, if somewhat chilly where you are! The birds are amazing, you are very lucky to have such pretty visitors!
