    They sit in (or under) our barberry bush & pick at what ever the chickadees & titmice & cardinals drop. I put a little mixed seed out for them from time to time, & they seem content…. One of the prettiest of the sparrows, these. Grand shot, Dave… all those textures! Cold enough for you? Just wait.

  • thanks Sheila. Spending hours in an open field trying to get a shot of the local Snowy Owl in definitely cold although it looks like we could get some warm weather shortly. I think my feeder is being overrub by Junco’s but that’s ok because they are cute little birds

    I call our local residents Slate-colored juncos, though when push comes to shove (& there’s a lot of that under the barberry bush), they are all Dark-eyed critters.
