We woke up to a couple of inches of snow on the ground and it's still pouring down with up to five inches expected before it's over. It's a chilly 22 degrees with 23mph winds making a windchill of around 10 degrees. Not nearly as cold as the polar vortex we previously experienced but still a day to stay inside by the fireplace. Of course the birds flocked to the feeders. The cardinals, the chick-a-dees, the woodpeckers, and the juncos have all made appearances. The always pesky starlings who want the seed all to themselves have also showed up on this very cold and snowy day. I have made them scatter a couple of times but I know they are hungry too so I let them snack while I took a few shots.
Pesky or not you have to feel a little sorry for them in this weather.
Such pretty feather patterns.
