USUAL SUSPECTS

Yes...it was almost a complete white out yesterday, with about a inch falling an hour all day! Needless to say, yours truly had a day off,  which included a huge breakfast,  listening to classical music all day, napped, and relaxing and doing some minor things around the joint. I think we ended up with around 8-10"...nothing your mistress can't handle!!! Brice, my cute neighbor, even dug my car out. I had him for lunch, I mean, I had him OVER for lunch. I fixed us grilled cheeses with tomato and bacon.   Of course there was a flurry of activity on the window sill yesterday.....
Junco's....
Two male cardinals. Could they have been a gay couple?
Tufted Titmouse.
House sparrows
Bonnie and Clyde along with a slew of mourning doves. At one point their was upwards of 28 doves!!!
Roosting after being at the trough.

My personal assistant, Buster Bolfig was having none of the day, and hid out in my boudoir to evening
I even made a crappy video of the falling snow. My neighbor Marissa even made an appearance with her sheltie.

  3. Wow wow wow those cardinals are pretty, I am too far north for cardinals but I have all the rest of those birds. Good thing you made the correction "had him over for lunch" because yes, my mind went there.

  4. All that snow! All those beautiful doves (and other birds)!! As pretty as the snow is, I hope it melts quickly so you don't get snowed in!

    1. Just about all that snow is gone already....but I now hear we may have another. Yikes.

  5. Glad there are good folks, like you, who feed the birds - especially in this weather! We now have a store dedicated to wild birds in our town and you can bet we bought a membership. :-)

    1. We have a shop like that here in Buckingham call Wild Birds LTD. They habe the best stuff. It's where I get my bird seed mixed.

  6. It looks like all of these birds are trying to pull an Alfred Hitchcock on you! They're trying to intimidate you into letting them in out of the cold.
    Buster has the right idea. He is so adorably cute.

    1. Sometimes the doves do fly right into the windows...and stun themselves.

    2. Oh those poor babies! I wouldn't wish that on any bird, even a glorified pigeon.

  9. I love seeing the cardinals come back to our yard; those colors are just so beautiful.

  10. Oh, brrr! I have to say, though, you live in a beautiful area. The appearance of your neighbor and the dog was a magical addition to the video and your photos are, as always, beautiful... as are the birds. It drizzled on and off here today but it got up to 68 degrees!

  11. Snow at this time of year is definitely for the birds. I'm not surprised that you've attracted a couple of gay cardinals (the photos are beautiful).

    Did you say grilled cheeses with bacon and tomatoes??
    Leave the front door open - I'll be right over!

  13. Those pictures are so pretty! It was certainly a white out for sure. Of course my personal favorite here is the Tufted Titmouse. They are so adorable.

  14. It's been awhile since we saw your lovely bird.s!

  15. My, that was a really nice winter wonderland sequence. While I have a lot of birds around here, the only ones I seem to notice are wood peckers.

    1. I'm not surprised you attract peckers.

  16. Oh, I too enjoyed the video.....you guys got clobbered. But the bird pictures are , as always so sweet to see. I love that you get them in the tree.

  17. Your dog has the right idea!

    But you are so kind to feed those poor birds! You made their lives a whole lot less stressful during a tough week. Kudos to you!

    Thanks for sharing these awesome fotos of such stunning birds! They are spectacular in that snow!

  18. O good god. If I ever saw that much snow I would immediately call 911 and demand to be airlifted out.

  19. These are beautiful pictures, and I loved the video. I've never experienced snow falling in my life, which is not surprising considering where I live.

    I probably would have hid all day like Buster, though.

  20. There is something nice about a random snow day.

  21. Beautiful to see - as long as I don't have to venture out in it to shovel or drive. I can't say I miss that type of weather. But, it sounds like you enjoyed yourself. Hugs!

    1. I have to say, sometimes a late night walk in the snow is great. It's very peaceful and mind clearing.
