The weekend forecast called for a dusting of snow over the Atlanta area that ended up dropping nine inches in our neck of the woods. It was a beautiful, perfect-for-packing kind of snow that provided hours of fun and memory making. It also knocked out our power for about sixteen hours, which simply added to the adventure, allowing us to play “CodeNames” by the fire.
Needless to say, I took advantage of the opportunity to get some snowy bird photos, a rarity here in “Hotlanta!” I took pictures til my toes were froze, my thumbs were numb, and the camera batteries had died! Here are a dozen:
And now, we’ve had our fill of winter weather here in the south; you all up north can keep the snow til next year!

Beautiful! I was waiting for the snow pics!
I had to wait til we got power back to download them!
Not bad Kathy for a snowy day! We got 12″ in Paulding County. Very nice photos! 🙂
Wasn’t it beautiful!

It really was so beautiful!
Wow! Looks like you got a LOT of snow!! HO HO HO! 🎅🎁🎄 We don’t have any yet!! ❄️
Record breaking for the month of December. It was lovely!
How do you get those amazing shots? Do you have a bird-hide in the garden? We’ve had a lovely, bullfinch visit here today, an infrequent visitor, but always a joy to see.
I put food out on the deck and then stand still and wait. They get used to me being there. 🙂
A wonderful selection of birds Kathie, the Eastern Bluebird took my attention, having lovely colours, different to the Mountain version. I love the rufous and blue contrast.
He really pops in the white background.
Beautiful collection and the snow just adds so much. Wonder what those birds were think having made it down south and thinking they had escaped winter weather?
I don’t get many snow opportunities!
Well I hope you enjoyed it and your photos suggested yo made the most of it as well.
So clever that they can still find nuts under the snow! 🤗 Lovely fotos Kathy.
And my birds are spoiled – I kept clearing off places and putting out fresh seed!
Wonderful pictures. The white snow makes a nice background for the birds.
Really helps their colors to pop!
Hi! Would it be ok if I include the Eastern Bluebird – Male photo in a Christmas snow post that I’m hoping to do soon, with usual credit and links back? Pls let me know, thanks!
Of course! I’d be honored.
Your capture of the Thrasher is so beautiful! I have only seen one once. (NJ)
Thanks. They are our state bird here in Georgia. They are quite photogenic. 😊
Wow so much snow for the south. Great pictures you got of the sweet birds🙂
Thanks – and it was a lot of snow for us!
