Birds in the Snow (from the back door)
After yesterday's Chiricahua adventure that included hours of cold, wet feet, and this morning's hour-long walk in snow and cold wind, I had no desire to bundle up to try for good photographs of birds at the feeders, but it was interesting to see that gusting snow did not keep a gang of hungry house finches from collecting. I ventured no farther than the back door, standing there in my slippers, the door open just long enough for a click!
Later, as the wind was abating, the snowstorm winding down, I opened the back door again and aimed at the feeders. Wasn't this cardinal the clever fellow, though? Posing against the white background!

The northern cardinal, a bird that presents itself strikingly against northern snow,
makes a welcome splash of color in the Southwest against a grey and brown backdrop.
The curve-billed thrasher, dull in color,
is equally welcome (despite his grumpy look),
because he sings almost as beautifully
as the mockingbird.
