Quod oculus meus videt

Collared Dove (Streptopelia decaocto)

It started frosty, but within an hour of sunrise the snow started to fall and didn't stop until dark.  The feeding stations in the garden, normally the preserve of smaller birds, were being visited by pigeons, starlings, blackbirds and collared doves, with the occasional foray from the local squirrel population.  It was quite comical to watch them try to get the seed from the feeders as all of them were too large to land on the perches.  Of course the squirrels were the most accomplished.

We still managed a short walk in the snow, through the park where numerous snowmen had been built during the day.
