All I got last week was hawks and crows. I'm heading out in the milder weather to bird seek. Love them.

Kind of sad to see the wind ruffle its feathers. Seems cold.

Sue said...

Birds...kind of like human life. We often get our feathers ruffled but things soon settled down so that we can perch quietly and enjoy life.

ELK, they are beautiful, this morning when I opened my back door the tree was full of birds, I knew if I moved they would all fly away so I just stood watching. Have a great weekend.

Beautiful shots...My hubby spied 2 robins on his walk the other day. Very unusual, especially at the beginning of February. Maybe this means spring is coming early this year.
