Default Snow birds.

Sharon puts little handfulls of bird food under the deck furniture. They don't have to dig though the snow to get to it.

Caught this Varied Thrush coming in, first we've seen this year, only got one shot off though, Puffed up with his downey coat on. Through glass.

We must have hunnerds of Oregon Juncos hanging around, This one was hiding in the Curly Willow. Jigsaw puzzle anybody?

Great colors, the birdI've never seen, then I am sitting here for some while looking at the curly willow....... can't find the bird! Re-Read the caption above and realize their is no bird in the curly willow, it WAS there. Yeah, that would make a neat puzzle and I think I see where the bird WAS.

Now you've got me confused Bob, there really IS a bird in the curly willow, the dark blob right in the center....



Well it WAS hiding in the willow WHEN I took the photo.

Thanks guys, alway appreciate you comments.

The Varied Thrush is first cousin to the American Robin, who is actually a thrush! I guess the first English over here saw a red breasted bird and that was close enough.

This guy is a lot smaller though. And so is the photo.

It took me a while to spot it also. That's a very pretty bird.

We also put bird seed under the lawn furniture when it snows. But the squirrels devour most of it.
