It's also coming down thick and fast, creating a low visibility and soft focus effect that's really quite beautiful. Of course, the critters are all out foraging for snacks, especially the poor migrants that sort of got caught in the middle of their journey. My tree branches are not only covered with snow, but with birds of all kinds! I counted well over twenty in one tree before the wind caused them all to shift again.
However, the resident titmouse was my personal favorite this morning. He stood on a branch looking cold and disheveled from the snow, but he kept bravely singing his spring courtship song in complete defiance of all evidence that he was pushing the season.
