Seeds in the Snow

In addition to the New Year, cold weather and snow arrived at our back yard this weekend. Since we’re in the middle of bird counting season, there were lots of birds visiting today. But the snow added a extra challenge for the ground feeders like this Junco.

These birds are smart. And they know the only way to get to the seed under the snow is to go digging.

“I know there’s seed right down there. I’m going in.”

“Oh boy, that snow on my beak is cold!”

“Thanks Jody for putting out premium sunflower seeds for us on this cold, snowy day.” šŸ™‚

Cheers ā€“ DJD
