Winter Interest

While the cats were all snug on my bed....


And the Amaryllis was in full bloom....

 I spent some time watching the winter wonderland outside.  Now THIS is Winter Interest.

Dark-eyed Junco under Viburnum 'Burkwoodii'

 I'm not going to tell you
Really, I'm not
It's just that lots of people are prejudiced
OK, if you insist
It's a European Starling
See?  Didn't you like it better before you knew what it was!

 Poor Mourning Doves are ground feeders, this one is in a depression in the snow, under the bird feeders, where the dogs tried to dig for spilled bird seed

A Red-bellied Woodpecker and a Dark-eyed Junco consider each other

A Young Downy Woodpecker

Well, the birds were enjoying the feeders until these two came out to play!
