At Home in the Snow

This pretty little Pine Siskin (Spinus pinus) is sitting on a shephards hook in our garden. It’s all puffed up against the cold. Letting those feathers do there job, keeping it warm!

Winter Hum


Here’s my little buddy the male Anna’s Hummingbird (Calypte anna). Seems he has choosen his Winter perch on our Rose of Sharon bush. He spent the day today going from this perch to the feeder. It’s been cold and windy, and more! It snowed yesterday. He’s definitely a Snow Hummer!
