Birds in the Cold

This morning the temperature here was about four degrees below zero. Below zero. You should have seen the birds at the feeder, they were stuffing themselves just to keep warm. We had the usuals: juncos (lots and lots of them), sparrows, titmice (just a few), a nuthatch, and the red bellied woodpecker. He has been my favorite this winter, he's just so big and vibrant. We have a million juncos, but hardly any chickadees, who I miss.
