Frosty Morning

It was FREEZING here this morning - the sky was clear all night. I know that because at 5 something this morning the moon was so bright it woke me up - shining on my face!
Anyway, there was a good layer of white everywhere. I was looking for a lot of busy-ness at the feeders - the numbers are still 'way down.
There are a few more sparrows - I think they are 'Gold Crowned Sparrows'? There was only one for a long time, but now there are four of them. Faith still comes everyday - we all look for her. I missed something a little later in the morning, tho'. My son was looking out the window and exclaimed, "Whoa! - that was a BIG bird!" He was pretty sure it was a bird of prey. I looked in time to see the whole feeder station swaying - I didn't see the bird.
Well, not much else to report. Hope you all are having a wonderful day!

You feed them, Diane, and they will come... Just be patient--I think they'll come back (especially if the cat is not nearby).

Nice pictures! We had some snow here today FINALLY.
Hugs,
Betsy
