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!
