Woke up to a 'nor' Easter

My porch says "Easter" but the weather sure
isn't thinking Spring or Easter..

The playhouse was a drift in a winter wonderland.

This is a first that I have had both St. Paddy's
day and Easter decorations up at the same time.
The snow was wet and was hanging onto every branch of
the trees. My little birds were waiting on seeds in the feeders.

Mr. titmouse cleared a little spot to wait.

It all looked so white and serene

and peaceful.

All the birds were waiting on me to get the seeds and
fill the feeders. Because of my squirrel population I do not
fill up feeders anymore, but put some in each morning.

The darling chickadee is only a foot away as I go out on
the porch.

Yea! Here she comes with the seeds.

peek - a - boo I still see you!

I had no more put the seeds in and returned inside the house
when I saw a flash and knew immediately someone else
was looking for breakfast too.

This Sharpie knows that it can snag a meal at my feeders.
He missed on the first swipe and hid out in the oak tree.
I feel bad for Mr. Robin... no worms today!

On the Sharpie's second attempt he was closer and I was
able to get better pictures.

No meal yet, but he will be back...

I get the prize for the fattest Carolina Wren!

I just love these Carolina Wrens, but every time
I see this little wonder (he or she) just keeps getting
fatter and fatter.

Check out this close up in the hanging feeder.

Holy mama don't fall off the side! How many seeds did you eat?

Do I get the prize?
