Opportunistic Eastern Phoebe Photo

I noticed Phoebe sitting in a Cherry tree outside a window in the bedroom so I dashed downstairs and grabbed a camera, It's not the best of perches but I take what opportunities I'm given.

Mockingbird in the Sunshine

In between a bit of vacuuming and floor polishing I noticed Mocker sitting in a Locust tree warming up in the sunshine. I managed to get a few images of him before he took off for the Yew tree to sunbathe.

Phoebe in the Snow

Little Phoebe has been in the yard for a few weeks now. I make sure he/she always has a good supply of mealworms and water to wash them down. Today it's been snowing nearly all day and we ended up with about 5 inches or so of dry powder so pretty easy to clear from the driveway.

Snomageddon ...... not!

Well the 1-2 ft of Snow, Ice Storms, Power Outages didn't materialize as predicted by the weather forecasters (now there's a thing). I had bought some battery operated lanterns, I'd fired up the generator. I'd fueled little John Deere ready for the snow event which pretty much missed us. We had about an inch of snow then it rained for the rest of the night. It’s getting a bit windy and the temperature is dropping down to 5f or 6f tonight they say. I've been putting plenty of food out all day for the birds and theres water heaters in the bird baths for them.

I took a few photos of the felines but decided that I've had several in a row on here so here's a Nuthatch instead.

Pumpkin

Pumpkin was sitting cleaning herself, lick, lick, lick, rub, rub, rub. In between licking and rubbing I took this one.
