Pine Siskin

An irruptive “winter finch” from the far northern boreal forests that some winters comes our way in the cold season. Lovely little birds.

Carolina Wren

One of “our” pair of Carolina Wrens came close enough for a decent portrait during a snow flurry

(*Check the journal for this week to know more and see some additional photographs)



Some rather unwelcome freezing rain coated the world in sparkles and slipperiness


European Robin

For a host of reasons there are not so many photographs to share this week so here’s a seasonally appropriate Scottish Robin we met a couple of years ago at the foot of Glencoe – by the time next week’s photographs are with you we will have passed the Winter Solstice and be on the run down to spring.
