These pictures were taken on Saturday morning, the day of our most recent snowfall. The snow was mostly gone by late afternoon.
An actual snowbird or dark-eyed junco, feeding on oats that I had scattered under the shrubs in the garden.
The Bluebirds weren't the only ones enjoying the beautyberries during the recent snows. This Phoebe moved in whenever the Bluebirds wanted to rest or had eaten their fill.
The hermit thrush has a very distinctive liquid chirp that they make, which has the same rich quality as their song.
