Wings on Wednesday

The backyard birds were quite abundant as we've just experienced another snowstorm. This system dumped about 10" of snow over night. It's cold but the sun is shining today. I think it's suppose to warm up toward the end of the week and the snow will gone. So, actually it's a novelty to have some (speaking as a person who grew up in South Dakota). We've had a variety of birds coming to feed: Harris's Sparrows, Dark-eyed Juncos, Northern Cardinals, American Goldfinches, Blue Jays, and a few House Sparrows. I haven't seen the White-crowned Sparrows yet today. We're really enjoying it and will enjoy it while it lasts!
Happy Wednesday!! Everyone :-))
