Sometimes when I'm out taking photos, I get exactly what I wanted to capture...and sometimes I get a little something extra. Like a photobombing chickadee. It was too funny to pass up as today's Blip. I'll post a proper photo of a black-capped chickadee some other day, as a record of my yardbirds project for 2017. They are here just about every day of the year, so I can wait for a better shot.
The snow started around 1 this afternoon. but the fox sparrow and tree sparrows were here first thing in the morning, busy eating cracked corn and seeds. When I saw them out there, I didn't even have to consult the weather channel - I knew it was going to snow. A short while later, there were at least 50-60 sparrows (4 different species) at the feeders, plus an assortment of other birds. In all, I counted 15 bird species, two squirrels and one fox.
Hubs is having a good, and productive, visit in Alabama. And, while I am looking out at snow, he's enjoying temperatures in the 70's. Well, soon enough, I'll be in Arizona ...and then who's going to be laughing?!
I posted three other pics on Flickr, starting HERE with the weather-forecasting sparrow.
Now, I'm going to make a cup of tea and curl up on the sofa, in front of the fire and read. Cheers, people.
