Out of the blue, and white, the Northern mockingbird arrived on the front porch
at breakfast today.
He stayed for a long time, more just resting than eating, but long enough
for me to take lots of photos through the dining room window.
Thank you sweet bird for not flying away for a long time.
This is the bird who looks so sleek until it perches and fluffs up its feathers.
It is really handsome/pretty - male and female are identical.
I love having it in the garden.
Such a beautiful morning - snow and sunshine!
Our snowfall of yesterday brought 7" between 9 am and 6 pm.
It just kept falling into the evening dusk, bringing such quiet beauty
to everything it touched.
Today, we continue to be housebound due to hazardous driving conditions.
Areas around us had up to a foot of snow, but this is not a problem - in
fact I'm loving it. As it will re-freeze tonight I will probably be here for
several days. Remember, this is the south, we're not well equipped
for snow removal!
