Backyard Sky

Linking up with Skywatch Friday
 




I am sharing some various sky shots from the past week.  I love seeing the crescent moon the last few nights and in morning the moon has been beautiful. We have actually had some pretty skies lately.. The snow is still around, the cold temperatures are keeping the snow from melting..





Looking out my dining room window I see the 3 male and 3 female cardinals, a redbellied woodpecker, a couple of WT Sparrows, 3 goldfinches and a downy woodpecker. Can you find all my birds I listed?


The morning snowstorm was over and later in the day the sky had some pretty clouds.


The crescent moon above is barely visible, maybe  if you click on the photo for larger viewing. I love the pretty pink clouds.


I hope you enjoyed my collection of sky photos and my pretty birds.  I hope the rest of your week is great.

Thank you for visiting my post. Maybe you can stop back and join in with my Saturday's Critter party.

To see more pretty skies from around the world please visit  Skywatch Friday

Thanks to Sylvia, Yogi  and Sandy for hosting Skywatch Friday!   I wish everyone a safe and happy long weekend.
