Winter Birds

We had a big snow storm last night and this morning which dropped over 30 cm  (1 foot) of snow on us.  The high winds blew it into drifts which are deeper than that!  

The birds seem overly hungry before and after a storm.  They were slow getting their feed this morning because it was difficult to access the feeders.  It is nice to feel appreciated when wading snow nearly to one's knees in order to feed them!  The crows were waiting in the trees.

The Mourning Doves were checking under the feeders.  

The American Goldfinches were glad when the feeders were filled.

And our special guest, the Ring-billed Gull, came for breakfast and was not disappointed.

The crows had to defer to the gull and wait for their turn.
