Snowbirds ♥

The snow (6.5 inches) has return this winter along with the Dark-eyed Juncos or Snowbirds. ♥

  2. You can keep the snow there...I'm a wuss y'know. But the birds...glad you shared them. They're beautiful. [by the way, when we first retired, we moved to AZ...and they used to call winter 'zonies' who'd come there for the winter "Snowbirds".]

  7. What a fitting name for them too. Their colouring is certainly ideal camouflage between snow and dark branches.

  13. I've never heard these called snowbirds. I thought those were people who went to Florida for the winter. :o) I have these same little birds in my garden, too. They like to hop around my patio looking for fallen seeds or enjoy the heated bird bath.
