..With the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again. St. Luke 6: 38

The Chickadee and cardinal
Have seen the measure withal
Repeat itself again.
And have been through it all...
With snow and freezing rain..
May the birds who remain
Keep warm hearts aglow...
If it takes as long as June
To dry the melting snow..
Poetry by me AJP

It snowed heavily all morning and afternoon this last day of February, and the birds took turns eating off the suet block because we couldn't keep up with the snow covering the sunflower seeds on their feeder..until late
this afternoon, when it finally stopped snowing.

    Beautiful capture and I love how you caught the red one ! Nice poem as well.....I've been watching the weather on the news and you guy's are getting hammered ! I'll be glad when it's over for you...I'm sure little Tippi's outings are very brief !

    Lovely pov on this splendid shot and a great example of camaraderie in the bird world! Hope your weather will do a sharp turn a round soon. We`re back in the deep freeze too, but thankfully no snow..

    More snow !!! That is incredible … This is a really great photo of the two birds at the suet and a nice poem about them. I know that the birds really appreciate you for supplying them food through the harsh winter weather that you are having.
