Freezing Rain - World Bird Wednesday

After getting an inch or so of snow before dawn, it has now changed over to rain/freezing rain/sleet. I had to post a picture of this female Northern Cardinal sitting out in the tree. Poor thing. It is about 31 - 34 degrees so it keeps slipping in and out of the type of precipitation that is coming down. I got outside and put a bunch of seed out in case the birds are hungry. Maybe a cup of coffee would help.

  1. I have yet to get a good shot of a lady cardinal. Yours is great!

  2. A lovely bird we don't get in the UK so many thanks for sharing.

  3. I always feel sorry for the poor birds in the winter months.
    She's a real beauty.

  4. Nice shots....but....I am so jealous that you have Bluebirds!
