Hawks and Chickadees in the Snow

We woke up this morning to a few inches of gorgeous snow on the ground. It's been raining all afternoon, so the snow is distinctly less gorgeous now, but I jumped at the chance to take some pictures from our apartment's windows while the scene lasted.

A pair of Red-shouldered Hawks has been hanging around our yard recently, and they were camped out in the trees across the street pretty much all morning:

These are some very handsome birds, and I'm glad they seem to like our neighborhood. :)

And when a few Black-capped Chickadees started foraging in the Red Cedar trees outside our window, I couldn't resist them. What's cuter than a chickadee? A chickadee in the snow!

With snow covering the branches, these guys knew to look for food from below:

I love having these wonderful little creatures around!

Yay, snow!

  1. Our feeders are mobbed with titmice, chickadees, juncos, and sparrows. It's snowing hard so they are stocking up for the cold night. I can't imagine how terrible winter would be without them!
