Look much the same here. Sadly there's not enough to build a snow hole, which is always good fun.
No snow up here! Not in our bit of Scotland anyway...
Snow here, as Dominic says. If you love the robin put out some suet for him - he would sell his soul for it.
I'm getting shivers just looking at that. Like how the robin appears to be sheltering under the limb.
I'm happy for you (if you enjoy it). I've been reading about the Arctic and North Atlantic oscillations that normally work in sync, but this winter are not, causing the dip in the jet stream bringing cold into Europe, and the opposite in North America. We will be quite a bit above freezing today in Michigan, when it would normally be well below.
HiLove your pictures - we have no snow here in New England - more like Spring. :-) Love Gailpeace.....
Glad you are getting to enjoy some snow and the birds. We've had a very odd winter of alternate bouts of freeze and thaw, but I think winter has finally come to stay this month--we shall see. I don't think we have green finches or chaffinches here. They look lovely. I've been enjoying similar activity from my windows (just of different species.)I don't know if you're much of a birder, but you might like the "The Big Year," :http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1053810/. A must see for all bird nerds (or aspiring bird nerds).
I do love how the snow brings all the garden birds to the feeder. We've had virtually no snow since our wrong-headed October snowstorm here, so the cardinals, in particular, have been scarce. Just today, I saw a pair, for what seemed the first time in weeks. Your robin, so different from ours, is such a sweet little bird (or so I thought, until I saw the action over at rambles with a camera's feeder today!).
So, please, pack some up and send it here!! My snowshoes are soooo lonely!!
What a wonderful day to just look out of your window. We've had no significant snow in the eastern U.S. this winter. Here in South Carolina today, it's been sunny and in the mid-seventies (F).
The freezing weather has definitely set in for the week, some think till March...
