Snowy Cardinal


Yes, we got snow here in Greensboro yesterday; almost three inches which is unusual for us this time of year.

Tomorrow I'll post how I managed to break the automatic transmission in the Honda Fit during our regular Saturday day trip. Today I'm just going to recuperate from all the excitment.

Another great photo.

Interesting that you have had early snow too. It takes its toll on the poor birds. I found a frozen redwing in the field this morning.

Exquisite little bird. How do these little creatures survive such harsh weather conditions?

Anyes: Yes and not out of the 30's all week.

DW: How sad for you to find the redwing. I haven't seen anything like that in my little garden, just twenty or thirty birds at a time at the feeders. It's why I put them out in the winter.

Val: My question is how do they keep their bare little legs and feet from freezing to the tree limbs. My biology classes fail me here . . .
