We were blessed with another gloomy, wet day, with lots of rain, sometimes with some snow mixed in. Didn’t seem to bother the birds. They were very active at out feeders. Here’s a pair of White-crowned Sparrows (Zonotrichia leucophrys) on the mossy wet branches of our Rose of Sharon.

Well, I don’t know if they are at home with it, but they don’t seem to mind it. This White-crowned Sparrow (Zonotrichia leucophrys) and several like him were busy at the feeders in our yard.
