A Snowmageddon Flashback

Five months ago today, Atlanta was brought to a standstill by a storm we called “Snowmageddon.” Although the winter weather was a nightmare for motorists, it was a delight for backyard bird watchers. My feeders were a constant frenzy of activity. I was continually darting outside with my new CanonSX50, taking picture after picture after picture.

So, just for fun, here are six never before seen photos (that makes it sound exciting, doesn’t it?) from January 28th.

Blue Jay
Yellow-rumped Warbler
Pine Warbler
Northern Cardinal (male)
Northern Cardinal (female)
Red-bellied Woodpecker

I love how the bleakness of the background makes the colors of the birds all the more brilliant!

  1. What an excellent set of shots, and I see what you mean about the background Kathy it does compliment the vibrant colours of these birds, a really beautiful set.

  2. I really like the winter scene! I would like to have a day or two of this in July and August just for a change of pace. The little birdies look happy.


  3. I don’t want to remember those days…and they will return all too soon. Ms Yellow-rump looks none too happy about this.
