Snowy Day Birds

Last weekend I got out and went for a wonderful wintery walk. Within days the snow has already melted. From snow day back to 'spring is in the air' weather very quickly. This afternoon more snow and the forecast is for 60 degrees in a few days. The birds were active and seemed to enjoy the snow day as much as I did, and I'm sure are looking forward to the warmer weather on it's way as I am :)

I tried using the share button in my flickr account to post my Snowy Day Birds collage on this blog. I think the collage looks really small. I probably won't use this feature for a collage again. If you click on the collage above it will link into my flickr gallery. You can see it better there.  

The birds were lovely during this outing.

Peek a view Downy between the snowcaps on tree.

A curious Redbellied Woodpecker looks for a place to stash his cache.

The nuthatch stretch looks lovely in any weather. 
I love the soft snow falling in the background. 

This adorable Whitebreasted Nuthatch seemed to be daydreaming. 
It sat for several minutes just taking in the scenery before moving on.

Oh hello delightful downy ..

Have a NATURE-ally Beautiful Day
