Brrrr.....and Snow!!!

This morning we woke up to a brisk 12 degrees F and a light dusting of snow. We sat and drank our coffee while watching a kalidescope of birds at the feeders in our backyard. At the feeders and in the trees were:

*Morning Dove *Blue Jay *European Starling *House Sparrow *House Finch *Carolina Wren *Carolina Chickadee *Downy Woodpecker *White Throated Sparrow *Junco *Northern Cardinal *Ruby Crowned Kinglet *Cedar Waxwing

Here is one of the many Northern Cardinals we saw this morning. This past summer we had two breeding Cardinal pairs that sucessfully fledged younglings. All winter we've had 10 or more Cardinals at the feeders.

Ahh. Nice to see the profile photo. Cool photo too. Sun is out today, I have a cold. But I am heading out on the water. I have a writer in town from Seattle Magazine.
