Another snow day

As was the case for most of the eastern half of the country, we woke up to a very snowy landscape on Wednesday—and it didn't look like it'd be letting up anytime soon. So we had a day off from work, which meant I had a chance to do some birdwatching.

First up, just to give you a sense of how much snow we'd gotten overnight, a shot of what my feeder looked like first thing in the morning:

A Titmouse that picked through the snow to snag a bite to eat:

This was the first Junco I've ever seen on my feeder:

A few Chickadee pictures:

I would think this tided the Chickadee over for a little while, at least:

A lucky catch of this Chickadee doing a taste test:

Think this Titmouse was trying to catch some snowflakes on its tongue?

This White-breasted Nuthatch got two for the price of one, as that bit of yellow is a piece of corn frozen onto the peanut:

Finally, a photo I took on Thursday morning; I heard a Cardinal when I walked out of the post office, and after a quick scan of the nearby trees spotted it up in some branches:
