I went out to shoot this photo of the Black Capped chickadee on a curving branch of a crab apple tree it was freezing but has stopped snowing and the sun is shining. The birds were happy that they didn't have to dig under a mound of snow to find their seeds today. It stopped snowing at 7:00 AM.

The high today 1° and the low tonight -20 ° Tomorrow a heat wave of 11 °, Sunday more snow
showers with up to 3 inches predicted. This little guy is cold but he is hanging on the best he can. it is imperative to feed the wild birds every day so that they can cope with this kind of weather.

    Sounds like your weather is constantly changing...our weather remains frigid and the birds are going through a lot of seeds and suet. A beautiful capture of this brave little chickadee Andrea!
