Hi and welcome to my first blessing list of 2014.
1. Outside my kitchen windows -January sunrises. Such a beautiful way to start the day.
4. The birds at our feeder – the flowers of winter. I never tire of watching them.
A little finch keeping warm on an icy day, feathers all fluffed up in a downy ball. Learn how birds keep warm in winter here.
This little Downy Woodpecker is getting every last bit of suet.
And look – a Purple Finch. “This is the bird that Roger Tory Peterson famously described as a ‘sparrow dipped in raspberry juice.'” (All About Birds – Cornell)
I love the spread of the American Goldfinch’s wings and tail in this shot. You don’t usually see this kind of detail unless they’re in flight. And I just happened to capture this finch as it was coming in for a landing at the feeder.
Thanks so much for joining me for Friday’s Favourite Five. It feels good to be back in the blogging routine.
