American Robins are another bird that don't come to my deck in bad weather but come back as soon as we have a warmer day.
I put fresh water in the bird bath as soon as I saw the robin above at the ice bath.
It's amazing how many waxwings flock to my trees. The next shot only shows a fraction of them.
The hawk below landed so high in a tree and so far from me that I was surprised to be able to zoom in on it at all. In the shot it looks like a small bird but if you look at it's predatory beak you can tell what it is. Also as far away as I was, a small bird would have been a dot.
The female rufous-sided towhee below was eating on my deck in bad weather.
The squirrel below stretched out for a drink before the snow and sleet started.
I enjoyed watching the little titmouse shown below.
You can tell that the sparrow is cold the way it's all puffed out.
I thought the ice covered leaf below was rather strange looking.
I liked the way the icicles hanging from the roof gutter looked.
The male cardinal stood out against the icy vines.
The male rufous-sided towhee has a mouthful.
The female rufous-sided towhee also has a full mouth.
A yellow-rump warbler was snacking on my deck wall.
The female cardinal is ice skating.
I love the way trees look when they are covered in ice.
The bluejay is having breakfast.
A pine sapling lay down under the icy weight.
The mourning doves showed up for ring around the rosie after the ice melted.
