What do you do when Winter is Flinging Weather left and right?
You sulk and pout inside where you are warm and dry.
The birds have no choice but to be outside.
This Steller's Jay looks none to happy.
I had lots of Juncos at the feeders.
I was pleased to see both of my Anna's Hummingbirds.
A Flicker watched from afar...
...while the Juncos and Towhees had a feast.
Juncos are pretty sweet birds.
This one has a few flakes of snow on his head.
The Flicker flew in for a closer look.
The California Quail came by.
I tossed food on the ground for them.
The male Anna's Hummingbird looked cold.
The Song Sparrow stomped through the snow.
I had a couple of Hairy Woodpeckers feeding at the same time.
Did not manage a photo of that, but here's one of a Hairy with a Chestnut-backed Chickadee.
I think the Chestnut-backed Chickadee used some 'adult' language when commenting on the weather.
I do like his chocolate brown accents.
Stay warm dear Annas. I'll have food ready just before daylight!
