Blizzard Birds by Beth Sawickie

Birds of the Blizzard

It’s January 26, 2015 and we have the beginnings of a blizzard here in NJ.

The birds seem to know it too and they’ve been out in search of food often.

I couldn’t resist bundling up and heading outside to spend some time with them.

Just needed a few things first … 2 pairs of pants + ski pants, 2 shirts, 1 fleece, wool socks, heavy jacket, scarf, hat, gloves and snow boots..  that’s all 😉

I’m very fortunate that all these gals and guys were just outside my back door!

I could hear the wind moving through the trees as the fine snow blew through the air.  Along with the birds chirping and ducks quacking.

I don’t know what the two above birds are called – do you?

That’s all so far.

We’re supposed to get many more inches of snow overnight.

I look forward to spending more time in the snow.
