This little bird was so cute. It kept this pose for some time and was loving to bask in the sun.. Notice how he is holding his wings and standing with his feet apart. I never saw a bird do this before as they are usually in a hurry to eat and get off the feeder.

    Great shot, Andrea. He's probably enjoying the sunshine and a break from the snow as well!

    He looks thoroughly contented to be there in that wonderful sunny spot that had birdseed. So cute. Great shot, Andrea.
