Snow Birds



My favorite part of winter is sitting at my kitchen table, in front of the sliding glass doors, with a hot cup of coffee or tea, watching the snow fall, while the birds flock to the feeders.



Of course I have my camera close by to capture the birds.



Our average snow fall for December in the Indianapolis area is about 6.4", so far this month we have had 7.9". I'm afraid that we may be in for a long snowy winter!



I'm not going to apologize again for my absence from the blog. The first holidays without my mom are difficult and I just don't have a lot to say right now. I hope you understand.



I'll leave you now to enjoy the rest of the pictures. Thank you for stopping by!

What joy to see a post from you, Robin! You've been heavy in my thoughts and prayers.

Your snow birds are so beautiful. They are a gift from heaven, right?

I think of you as I watch my birds and think 'I should have my camera on a tripod like Robin'. Do I listen?? no....camera is somewhere else! Glad you have yours in the window waiting for that perfect photo.

Beautiful! I love cardinals.

I love your cardinals. We don't have them in Colorado. On a trip to the Texas hill country I sat in the woods hoping to catch a lucky shot of one. No such luck. My goal remains to photograph one in the wild or at someone's feeder--that would do nicely. ann

These are gorgeous! Cardinals are my favorite birds and the females are just as lovely in their own way as the males. I wish I could get photos like these!
