The temperature was hovering around zero with freezing rain tapping on the window pane, so backyard birding seemed like a better idea than trudging down the trail in the park. Call me a wimp, if you want, but I’m happiest indoors in weather like this.
The bluejays don’t seem to mind much as long as the rain isn’t pelting down, but I do mind, so I decided to do a little backyard birding from inside my kitchen window today.
In most tree-shaded backyards, birding usually includes squirrels, and my yard is no different. This squirrel is sheltering under the bird feeder, and he looks pretty happy about having the food all to himself.
Most days I prefer birding along the trail in the park, but today I am thankful to capture my birds through the window. I hope you enjoyed the view.
Thanks for joining me. Let’s hope for sunny weather soon.
I’m not a trailwalker today!
