Old man winter stopped by this weekend. Thankfully, we only got a little over a foot of snow in this part of Virginia instead of the anticipated two feet. I know other places north of here got much more than expected.
After lots of shoveling, I was glad to see sidewalk concrete and driveway pavement peeping through the snow. The trees in my backyard were dressed in winter white and I worried about how the birds and wildlife would find something to eat. I even made a makeshift bird feeder and put some cereal out for the birds.
While I haven’t seen any birds at the feeder, I have been amazed at the huge flock of robins that have been flying from tree to tree in search of food and then rest on the snowy branches. Some of the house sparrows have joined in as well. I even saw woodpeckers but I wasn’t able to catch a good photo of them before they flew away.
I am going to place my winter gallery into Cardinal’s Monthly Changing Seasons event as a Version 1 entry. I previously made a January Version 2 post which you can see here. I was planning to stick with Version 2 only, but decided to add these photos too. That’s a good thing about the Changing Seasons challenge-there are lots of formats to choose from!
Hope you are having a good winter, wherever you are!
