Harris's Sparrow
 This is all the snow we've gotten so far this Winter.
We got this snow on Christmas day.
Tufted Titmouse

I'm thinking this is a Ring-billed Gull.





 The Gull and this little waterfowl were located
at the fishing pond near town.
At the pond we also see Downey & Red-breasted Woodpeckers, Harris's
Sparrows and Juncos.  We saw a Spotted Towhee and many Cardinals
hanging out at the pond as well.

Such pretty backyard birds! I really like the Harris's Sparrow because I have never seen one in person before. They are all beautiful though. Surprisingly, I think we have had less snow (in Chicago) than you this winter. Sounds like you saw some pretty birds at the fishing pond too. Wonderful post!
