One of my many Dark-eyed Juncos seen on my deck.


January 13th, we woke up to more snow. Just a enough to cover the ground and deck.


The snow sent the squirrels and birds into a feeding frenzy.

  2. More wonderful bird photos Eileen. Your squirrel is very cute too. The smattering of snow dust looks lovely. I hope you find it warm and cosy enough to get some reading done while the weather is chilly ;-)

  5. link no 7, the tree is wrong.Maybe you should delete it. The linkup took the link from an earlier linkup instead of my new one :(

    The doves seem cold and that was a very snowy squirrel :)
    wishing you a great week.

  6. Good Morning Eileen. You are having quite a lot of snow but at least you are managing to get some pictures. Unlike me. Here it just keeps raining and blowing and it is hard to go birding for nothing. Have a good weekend and thanks for the link-up today.

    Thank you for another week of hosting. Have a great weekend!

    This winter is really making itself known all over the Northern Hemisphere! Critters everywhere are lucky to have such as yourself providing respite from hunting. Hope your weekend is warm and dry! YAM xx

  10. I suppose even the animals need to eat extra to keep their body warm during the winter. They are fortunate to have you feeding them.

  11. Hello,

    Beautiful photos of the birds. Yes, the snow makes the amimals very hungry. The Dark-eyed Juncos are very pretty.

    Happy Weekend!

  12. The squirrel is still very hardworking on the winter, for survival.

  13. Awww those are cute shots of the birds and squirrel trying to stock up on food as the snow fell! The mourning doves are very sweet to wait!
    Thanks again for hosting Eileen!
    Happy Saturday!

  14. Hi Eileen, I love the Dark-eyed Juncos. And the snow on the squirrel is interesting but made me feel cold. We're experiencing incredible heat here in South Africa so cannot imagine your world is covered in snow! Thanks for hosting this meme; I love joining in Greetings Jo

  16. Hello Eileen!:) Two birds of yours that I really like, are the Mourning Doves, and the Juncos. Don't see them here, so it's lovely to see them in your yard. That Squirrel has a very fluffy tail! Haven't seen any like it before. Hope your weather improves, it's raining today here, but thankfully no snow. Many thanks for hosting, have a great weekend!:)

  17. Mourning Doves, squirrels and snow - could be my backyard!

  18. Lovely photos, Eileen. It looks very cold where you are, while here we sweltered with 42˚C!

    ReplyDelete
  19. Nice close ups Eileen . . .
    Love seeing the Junco up close.
    I see bunches of them when the snow flies!

  20. The birds and squirrels appear in any weather here too.

  21. Love the snowy squirrel photo!
    Have a wonderful week-end!

  22. Ha, I was just thinking what David Gascoigne wrote above. It could be my backyard. I have a plethora of morning doves, Juncos and squirrels and snow this winter. But I mostly love the colorful cardinals, finches, and even the squawking blue jays on occasion. My favorite is the pair of Partridges who come and climb up into the tops of the trees and bushes and can balance on the thinnest of branches while eating the berries. I get such a stiff neck, craning it to look up and watch them. Just amazing! Have a wonderful day.....

  23. Thank for hosting, Eileen. Keep warm!

  25. I've noticed that the birds in our backyard get very active and much more territorial.

  27. You took some really nice photos during the snow. Love that squirrel and the junco, especially. Have a great weekend!

  28. They sure seem to come to the feeders more in the cold weather. We've had lots of birds and even a few different ones, like a Towhee in ours! Enjoy your weekend! Thanks for the party! Hugs, Diane

  29. Snow does make for awesome pics. I actually saw a squirrel yesterday. They are better at hiding than the ones we have in Illinois. I guess they are not used to seeing humans like their city cousins.

  30. I love doves, they are so sweet and i love their coos.. they all look a little cold to me. i have been complaining about being cold for a week and we have nothing like you have.

  31. Our big flock of Goldfinch left us a week ago and haven't returned!

  35. Poor birds and squirrels dealing with all the snow! Nice shots! Hope things get less frosty soon!

    ReplyDelete
  36. Juncos always come in just before dirty weather. They are good forecasters.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Some cute shots there, especially the critters in the snow. We're hoping for some snow here soon!

    ReplyDelete
  38. Your dove photos make me want Spring! We've had lots of dark-eyed juncos and squirrels around here as well. Hope you are having a great weekend!

  39. I really love the Dark-eyed Juncos, so surreal.

    ReplyDelete
  40. I miss the juncos but not the snow! Love the sweet doves!

  45. It is sunny & warm here and there are hardly any birds around!

  46. Reading this post reminded me I need to buy more birdseed and some corn for the squirrels! Thanks :) Happy Saturday.

  47. Winter is so hard on birds and little creatures...bless you and everyone who puts out food for them!

  48. I love the squirrel ! Very nice !

    ReplyDelete
  49. Have been running for 3 consecutive years.
    Must be fun but difficult to run on the snow.
    Happy days to you.

    ReplyDelete
  50. I just said to myself today that I don't see as many Mourning Dove as I used to..they are a beautiful bird.

    ReplyDelete
  51. I loved the doves! They are actually really pretty birds. Hope the weather improves. cheers.

    ReplyDelete
  52. Wonderful bird photos. The squirrel has his work cut out for him but he's a survivor and knows what he's doing. Nice photo!

    ReplyDelete
  53. Ahh...those morning doves are so sweet!

    ReplyDelete
  54. My favorite is the dove in the snow.

    ReplyDelete
  55. You and Missy take the best pictures of birds. I admire your photography skills! We had a pair of doves cooing each morning right outside our bedroom, like at 5:00 am promptly all summer long haha. Mr. Squirrel is pretty cute too!!

    ReplyDelete
  56. Hello, I do not have material to link up this weekend. But I am admiring your doves...they are new to me. Good to know.
    Have a nice Sunday!

    ReplyDelete
  57. As always Eileen...great photos. But, of course, I'm glad the snow is up north. Here along the Texas coast, I've had enough 'winter'.

    And, I want to convey my thanks to you for sharing this post with all of us birders from I'd Rather B Birdin' this week!!!

    ReplyDelete
  58. You have a late arrival visiting your meme, Eileen... Rather full tummy with stolen fruit!
    Have a great new week!

  59. Love your little Mourning Doves, so patiently waiting. It's always nice to see birds and squirrels even as it snows! Have a very nice week, Eileen, and thank you for visiting and leaving a comment my blog.

  60. Loving your doves and busy squirrel. I enjoy watching the critters wayyyy too much every morning!

  61. Hi Eileen, Sure enjoyed the birds and the squirrel as well! Neat photos! Thanks, as always, for sharing. Wishing you a happy week ahead and sending you kind greetings from the Pacific Northwest! John

  62. The snow is lovely Eileen, but ..... The birds are lucky you are there! Thank you for hosting this wonderful sharing opportunity and I am especially grateful for your visits and comments. Thank you for taking the time to do that.

  63. The Mourning Doves are my favorite!

  64. Greetings on this lovely (so far no snow yet) evening, although I meant to post this before I left the house today! Oh well it's in now! Looking at some of your bird shots there is a bit of snow falling down on those sweet birds. I wonder if the shutdown will be over sooner rather than later. What a strange state of affairs.

    ReplyDelete
  65. Lovely capture of the squirrel in the snow.

    ReplyDelete
  66. Fun pictures! I've decided that I should just stop watching the weatherman, and just watch the birds and squirrels instead, they certainly did know that cold weather was coming, didn't they? Last night I happened to catch a raccoon eating a few bites, he was a cutie, and I wished I'd had a camera to snap a photo.

    ReplyDelete
  67. Your deck must be attraction number one for the birds in your area! Always, lovely photos!

  68. Lovely to see these Eileen.
    Loved the squirrel!

    All the best Jan
