Teetiny Bit of New Snow
It was so nice to have just a teetiny bit of new snow to freshen up the landscape. Our old snow was rotten and icy. It was also covered in road pucky or dust. It looked like a volcano had spewed ash all over Anchorage. Yuck! Today dawned with a bit of sunshine and fresh snow. We also got some treats at the feeder. We got our first two boreal chickadees and a grey jay. The grey jay was HUGE after watching the chickadees at the suet feeder. That bird looked like a giant.
I also saw a female pine grosbeak at the seed feeder. She was too funny. She dwarfed the feeder and tried to keep all other birds at bay. Until today I had only seen the grosbeaks ground feeding.
Nice beat down, Ms. Grosbeak.
