Snow falls here once and a while. This happened to be one of those times. The birds are actively feeding and puffing up their feathers to keep warm.
A question to contemplate- Is the snow whiter on the other side of the fence?
The more we study the Varied Thrush’s colors, the more spectacular they become. Especially in the snow!
In close competition for stunning feather color against the snow is this little Purple Finch.
