2 more pictures in notes above ! :)

We woke up to a dusting of snow and a temperature of about 27°F degrees. Very soon it began to snow more and more, and we ended up getting about 4"! More than we got all last year, in one day!!

I was going to go out and get some fun macro pictures but as I started my day, I looked out to see the birds out at the feeders, which were empty! So I went out and filled everything up, put out suet, made new humminbird juice, and within minutes, it looked like a scene out of Snow White! Birds flying everywhere and enjoying the feast I put out for them! How could I resist taking pictures of them?! :D

My Picture of the Day features a favorite birdy, the lovely Oregon Junco. They are bigger than the ultra adorable Black Capped Chickadee but no less cute! They spend their winters here and we love seeing their boisterous antics every day! :)

James Mercer Langston Hughes (February 1, 1902 – May 22, 1967) was an American poet, social activist, novelist, playwright, and columnist. He was one of the earliest innovators of the then-new literary art form jazz poetry. Hughes is best known as a leader of the Harlem Renaissance. He famously wrote about the period that "the negro was in vogue" which was later paraphrased as "when Harlem was in vogue". Wikipedia: Langston Hughes

That Oregon Junco do looks nice. Sometimes I wonder how different birds there are there in North America, compared to Europe. I would think it should be relatively easy for birds to breed across the ocean, but I guess not.

Excellent Junco image
Lots of them here, I call them the clean up crew because they follow the squirrels around on the deck and clean up any crumbs left behind, many have figured out if they sit and stare at me long enough a shelled peanut manages to fall their way.
