It is cold! It is freezing here! You all already know that..The wind chill temperature is currently -15 and blowing at 15-20 MPH. I feel bad for the birds. They stay in group whenever they can. Some of them can barely fly in this strong cold wind either. So wrap up and stay warm!
Life is good when you sighting a hawk like this in plain view! I watched it through my window when it was still in between the branches. I also saw it caught something and ate it. And then just like that, it came in clear view for me to snap.
Beside eating at the feeder, the junco also seems to like eating these old aster flower heads. We had another two inches of snow during last week, but whenever the sun came out, the juncos came to visit too.
Their under belly feathers were as white as snow, and the dark feathers on top made them stood out! Have a wonderful week...
I was looking through my archives for some pictures to post, but get tired of the process and went outside to do some shoveling. When I took a break and looked up, I saw this fluffy hawk quietly perching in another yard.
