I know it’s still fall, but it sure felt like winter here in Georgia this morning. The temperatures were below freezing, so as soon as the sun made its appearance, I bundled up and headed outside to fill the feeders and add fresh water to the birdbaths. It didn’t take long for the birds to start showing up.
Some came looking for food…
While others came in search of a nice refreshing drink.
The water dishes that didn’t have a heater iced back over pretty quickly. I had to keep going out with a big old ice cream scoop (Blue Bell Vanilla Bean is what it’s usually used for) to break up the surface layer of ice. Although the birds didn’t flutter about me like they do for Snow White, they did seem to appreciate my diligence.
I’m not a big fan of winter, but it is nice to have more activity at the feeders.

Great pictures Kathy! 🙂
These are beautiful shots! Thanks for sharing your lovely visitors with us!
I love your hungry feathered friends! What lucky birds to have you to feed them.
…and lucky me to have them to feed. 🙂
Wonderful photos! You are fortunate to have so many different species to observe (and photograph). It is always enjoyable to watch Downy Woodpeckers hammering bark for frozen bugs.
I am indeed blessed!
Beautiful photos! I am going backwards in your blog reading all of your older posts and am quite enjoying them all! Thanks for writing and sharing your photos! Tracy
I love writing and sharing photos – it brings me great joy. And it makes me smile that you are enjoying them too. Thank you for stopping in. 🙂
Stunning shots! I am impressed, you have captured the character of the bird well Kathy. The experts say you have it when you catch ‘the gleam in the eye’. Magnificent photography and beautiful again that you can share your lovely birds with an Aussie!
Thanks so much for the kind words. 🙂 And it’s fun to connect with people in other parts of the world that share a common passion.
