Wild Birds: In My Backyard

One day in the early evening around five o'clock this little sparrow was enjoying the last rays of sunlight as he sat on my wisteria branches.
The next day around noon this little sparrow found himself in a pouring snowfall.

Chickadee.....................................................................Chickadee...Gone!

The pictures of the sparrow are wonderful. I think he will be glad when Spring arrives.

The first picture's bird looks so fluffy....like he just washed his feathers and now he can't do a thing with them! And that poor bird in the snow storm...he looks cold!

Lovely sparrow. I love the color contrasts on the bird.

Karen said...

Nice shots. I love the little sparrows, I have a few kinds in the yard. I had to laugh at the chickadee shot, that's what mine look like, they never hold still long enough to photo them!

Your sparrow looks puzzled about the snow (and I don't blame him). Chickadees are one of my favorite birds, but they are always "gone" for me!

Carletta, your WT SParrow is pretty. Those chickadees are quick little birds. Great photos!

ALthough I really like the birds - it was the difference between your wisteria and mine that caught my attention! I see if I can find a way to post an image with so leaves in it, just to remind you of what it will look like again soon!

Cheers and thanks for linking to WBW.

a beautiful sparrow. It probably was searching for shelter from the snow. :)
