GOOD FENCES and LITTLE THINGS THURSDAY
We here in the PNW (Pacific Northwest) have been having a very cold & snowy winter. - It started snowing here where I live on New Years Day and pretty much snowed everyday for a solid week. The last snowfall we had was yesterday. We probably have at least a 18-22 inches.
Here is a scene from yesterday: Click to enlarge photos.
As you can see here the sidewalks have been shoveled somewhat - I ended up pulling a muscle in my arm the day before shoveling snow.
I did take a walk on Sunday after one of the snow storms and took some snowy fence shots.
These I'm sharing for Good Fences today.
Yesterday I happened to look out our dining room window and saw some birds flying up into the neighbors Hawthorne trees. Something about them caught my eye so I got my camera and went out to photograph them.
What was unusual you might ask....
They would pull the berries off the Hawthorne tree and drop them in the street to eat them.
I also noticed them at the little stream that runs through one of the neighbors place drinking water.
It just amazed me how many there were and in the middle of a snow storm. They pretty much stayed all day long picking berries off the trees. Towards late afternoon the sun actually came out for a few minutes and I captured this little fellow with some blue sky.
Today I haven't seen a single Robin and I just took a walk across the street to where the Hawthorne trees are located. The Robins picked them clean yesterday!
In the midst of the cold and snow it was nice to see these lovely birds.
