Birds enjoy a bit of sunshine
As much as they can find.....
To warm the winter freeze
Todays high was 14 degrees.

A wise black capped chickadee
Found a limb in crab apple tree
Was the greatest place to fly,
To soak heat from western sky.
┬ęPoetry by me AJP

The sun was shining from the west this afternoon when I shot this picture outside. It was a bit cold but my battery held up in spite of it. The windows are smudged up at the moment for shooting pictures through them and have to wait until the weather warms up before washing them:-) However I feel the picture turned out better outside anyway and easier to focus than trying to get a clear shot through smudgy windows, which was my fault when I applied Windex earlier this winter the spray froze to the window..

Best View in Light Box! Thank you!!!

    Thank you Gail for your congratulations....I love the Chickadees and this one was willing to
    hang around long enough on the high limb of the tree to be photographed as he viewed his
    world from above.
