On this one you can see the layer of ice that was first deposited on the sedum head.
We had so many visitors to the feeders today that it inspired my DB to get the camera out. This male Cardinal looks so pretty sitting on the ice covered branch munching a seed. In the background you can see a male House Finch. He can't quite compare with a cardinal even though he is sporting a nice rosey red.
While the female House finch isn't a particularly beautiful bird I think this photo is a good capture of the little lady. She looks quite demure sitting there in the sun waiting for her turn at the feeders.I thought this was an interesting angel of the juvenile White-crowned sparrow. It is looking around for just the right seed to descend upon. I wonder when his crown will turn white.
The most unusual feeder birds we had today were two Crows. They rarely come into our garden. It just shows how desperate they poor things were for some food.They were eating sunflower seeds. I put some yeast rolls out for them. I didn't know just what to put out for them. I could tell they were appreciative because they ate the rolls then took off to look for something more.
