Feathered Friends

Happy New Year, dear friends. 

I've been watching all kinds of little birds busily fluttering around the feeders this morning.  I think they are stocking up ahead of the bitter cold that is expected to hit us tonight and the next couple of days.    This is my first experience with dark eyed juncos and pine siskins at my feeders.  White breasted nuthatches, too. 

 Unfortunately, I don't have any pictures to show you but believe me when I say that its a joy to watch them.   I'm sticking some in here trying to give you something warm to imagine during this winter. 
Cedar Waxwings 
I'm supposed to go birding at Lake Chatuge on Saturday morning but we'll see.  There IS a limit as to when I'll venture out in cold weather.  We're having wonderfully sunny weather, so that helps tremendously during the day.  Temps drop like a rock at night, though.

Y'all take care.  


  1. Love seeing the beach photo. *sigh*

  2. Thats a remarkable shot of the wax wings - probably more waxwings in that tree than I have seen in my whole life!!

    PS: work has settled down, school and summer holidays just about over, normal service will now be resumed!

  3. Actually, I find that photo of the cedar waxwings...kinda scary...Dont be eating a blueberry pie in front of those guys anytime soon...
