    The weekend snowstorm seem to catch the bird population off guard.

    This black-capped chickadee seemed to not know what to make of it!





    A northern Cardinal puffed up against the cold...



    And all the snow made my neighbor's feeder a very popular place!

    Looks like a nice variety, chickadees, cardinals, pine siskins, house finches and goldfinches. All I get are woodpeckers, nuthatches and chickadees at my set up. I can't wait for spring.

    I love these bird pics! I get these same birds in my back yard - the cardinal is always my fav, and I always try to get pics but I don't have any good ones to share. Great photos!

    Excellent job as usual Grandpa. Your first image definitely captures the scale and fragility of the bird. Very nice series and great models.

    Thanks, friends. I've always considered birds one of the most difficult subject I attempt and am seldom satisfied with the result. The snow and my neighbor's feeder made these guys enough of a captive audience for me to be able to sneak up on them a bit. These are mostly still fairly heavy crops at the long end of my 70-200.

    Dane nice series - nice to see some wildlife from you too. Looks like we both use neighbours feeders

    Great bokeh from that lens - love those cardinals. I'd be making more visits to that garden
