Snow is for the Birds

I have probably spent more the past few months on bird seed than I have my entire life.  But with snow mounding up and the temperatures dropping to double digits below zero, I just HAVE to.  And yes, I know they are wearing little down jackets, but still....


The magpies look spiffy still in their black and white 'tux' outfit.  They are my "we will eat anything you put out", challenging the squirrels for cereal and bread crumbs.

I also know that sparrows are considered by some to be a 'trash' bird, invasive, over-populating and driving out native species.  But despite the snow and their reputation, how can you not feel joyous with this....
