BIRD WATCHING ON AN ICICLE-LY DAY

Eurasian Sparrows

While the human  species was hunkered down  indoors over the weekend  dreading  the ice storm prediction, our little feathered friends had no  choice but to venture out in search of  nourishment.    Here is  a sampling  of the birds that visited my backyard feeders over the weekend.

Hope you enjoyed the photos and that the  weather treated you kindly in spite of the prediction.

Thanks for reading!

    Where are your squirrels hanging on those feeders. Mine are so smart they would be hanging off those feeders and enjoying the seeds! Great pictures!
