The Clever Bird and the Snow

video

We got about 10 inches of snow today. The highlight was watching a little bird who was quite cleverly staying in the gap in the snow underneath the water dish on my feeder pole and gobbling up spilled seed on the ground there. It kept him out of the wind and falling snow, and was probably warmer down there, too!





And here is evidence of my memory issues, in full color. I knew we were supposed to get 10 inches of snow, but somehow I managed to forget to close my car window! I was watching Kevin shovel after we got about 6 to 8 inches, when I realized the snow had covered my whole car, with the strange exception of the driver side window... This shot was taken a minute after Kevin brushed the snow out of my seat and the driver's side map pocket and shut the window for me. Oops! Guess I'm not such a clever bird, sometimes...



Here's Kev after 15 minutes out in the snow...

Oh these are beautiful photos! What a great treat to watch the bird! This is my visit here. I love the cute little feet in the picture, which is what got me over here to check out your blog:)
Thanks

Nice photos. I don't think we will ever see the grass or driveway again-it is still snowing!! I hope your car interior is "de-snowed"
