As you can see from this photo (I toyed with the stain glass filter on Photoshop), our windows are floor to ceiling which gives us an unobstructed view of the birdbath and the feeders in our front yard.
At one time I counted eleven male cardinals in the Rose-a-Sharon and huckleberry bushes.
Then almost as if an alarm sounded, the Doves stormed in cooing and feeding from the split-log feeders.
Last week Jilda saw a single Purple Finch land on a branch of the white pine and peer through the glass as if to say "WE"RE HERE."
That afternoon when I finished writing, I went out to the shed to get the Finch feeder.
I hung it close to the window and away from the other feeders. Then earlier this week when we looked out there were six Finches feeding with a host of others on nearby branches awaiting their turn.
Every now and then a sparrow will come to the feeder, but I guess their beaks are too broad because they quickly get frustrated and fly over to the big-bird feeders.
A few years ago we had an abnormal year which brought snow several times. I took this picture that I call Snow Doves.
The weatherman is forecasting snow tomorrow, but it should be short lived because temperatures will be in the 50s by the weekend.
