Brrrrr Cold

It has been one of the coldest days of the winter today and other than a trip to the mailbox and to put some bird food out, it has been an indoor kind of day.

The birds have been hitting the suet feeder and the water fountain heavily.  The pond behind the house has a light coating of ice and the bird baths are frozen so when the birds found the fountain running, it has been a steady stream of visitors.

I have been checking US temperatures all day and it looks like the jet stream is already pushing back up north a bit which is fine by me.  Hopefully I can get out a bit tomorrow.

Great shots. I have no idea where all the birds went here. I get a few and then off they go!! I put out some suet (not homemade) in hopes that would help.

WoW!! it was cold today. We had a low of 14º this morning and a high of 36º. The wind didn't help. I stayed in all day long.

It was a horribly cold day. We did not get above 26 and with the wind chill, it was less than that. Fortunately it is going to be a bit better today. The birds will find the suet in a couple of days. They don't like the cold and wind either and stay hunkered down.

Your getting a nice variety of birds Paula!
All I've been seeing is Blue Jays, chickadees, woodpeckers and a few doves.
Nice photos.

Thanks Liz. I was happy to get the Blue Jay. They don't come around much so it is nice when I get a good look at one.
