We've had more wintry weather today that has brought quite a lot of bird activity to Robin's Nesting Place. I apologize in advance for the number of bird pictures I'll be posting, I've been just a little bit bird brained today. I'll do two posts to divide up the pictures.
This blue jay was quite upset that the acorns and peanuts were covered with snow, (this picture was taken yesterday). It was making quite a racket. It never tried to move the snow out of the way to eat, just squawked angrily. Notice the whack job the rabbits have done on the burning bush? I saw little rabbit prints in the snow. I actually spotted the little menace a few days ago for the first time.
I went out and scraped away the snow this morning and filled it with fresh acorns and peanuts; the blue jays have been much happier today.
It always amazes me how many doves can sit together on a thin limb. There were more but a few flew away when I walked up to the door to get the picture.
Doves are so common, but they are such beautiful creatures.
I haven't really minded winter too much today. It always thrills me when I have beautiful birds within camera range.
