This was a day when every branch and twig was covered not with ice or frost, but with heavy white snow. It made lots of hiding places for the birds.

The red-breasted nuthatch is a pretty little bird that often cooperates when I try to make photographs.

I am unfamiliar with this bird ... from my field guide I would guess that it's a house finch. Comments

This squirrel was NOT pleased to see me taking his picture ... again.

This was just one of the amazing birds I saw today. I also saw a hawk, chickadees, sparrows, two varieties of nuthatch, blue jays and best of all ... what seemed to me to be a small, young, rather gray-colored blue jay. It was just as curious about me as I was about it ... repeatedly flying close to the window, trying to see inside. Several times it perched right on the outside window sill about two feet from me and the camera and peeked wide-eyed in the window right at me. Too bad the picture of that bird was not so good. I hope I see him again.

I thought it was a soggy-foggy, but not dreary, day.

Here are some of those frost-covered trees that we were admiring on Wednesday when we saw the hawk.

From the picture and description in my field guide to birds, I am guessing that this bird is a "dark-eyed junco". Do you know? Would you email me to confirm (or correct) my guess?

This morning, while we were admiring frost-covered trees, a friend spotted this hawk. I've seen several hawks recently but I don't know much about the different kinds. My field guide wasn't much help. Could someone please identify this one for me?
