Winter Glimpses



we love our little winter chickadees
this one
black-capped chickadee


sometimes are winter sky is like above
daydream inspiring

sometimes peace inspiring:


we are still bundled under a deep blanket of snow


which makes tracking so much fun
who walked over the bridge during the night:

the little nuthatch has its down fluffed up:

  6. I love your glimpses of winter, Tammie. I think a fox walked across that bridge. Your puffy birds are so cute. The only ones I've seen all winter here are the Gray and Blue Jays.

    1. I thought it was a fox too. That seems to be the main tracks I have seen in this deep snow. Well and there was those two lion cubs who seem to have moved on.

      I have the Stellar’s and Canada jays too.
      Last year I had juncos and I have not seen one this year. I miss them.
      Today I saw my first blackbird, that was fun.

  7. Wonderful images of your beautiful world! The Chickadees are so adorable. I love the shot of the footsteps across the little snowy bridge! Something trotting along and dragging its paws a little in the snow! Yes, indeed, beautiful skies to dream by!

  11. Hello Tammie,
    Even if I am late... as usual!, happy birthday to you :)
    Nice to see you step into the next year with serenity as I would expect from a person highly spiritual like you ;-)
    How it seems where you live, one must really be used to it, I couldn't!
    I am better in Africa! LOL!
    Your photography is spectacular, the sunset in previous post is magnficent.
    But again, so it is here too ;-)
    Enjoy what's left of the week and take good care

  12. Hi - I'm so glad that you've gotten a normal heavy blanket of snow. It looks gorgeous! Our chickadees have begun singing their springtime songs on warm days. I love hearing sounds of spring!

  13. these shots are beautiful. I wish I could take a walk there, that is, I would have to be bundled up very heavily with tons of layers.

    have a lovely day.

    Last snow melted yesterday here.....

  15. Your puffy birds are so adorable!
    I imagine the animal elegantly walked the bridge and left its tracking!
    Have a lovely day,Tammie.

  16. Lovely pictures as usual. I love the birds. We have the Coal Tit here, which looks very similar to your black-capped chickadee. I wonder if they are the same species - Parus ater.

    1. Thank you Nick. I looked it up, seems both birds are passerine birds in the tit family. Good notice on your part.

  17. Amazing to see all the snow!!!

    Your first photo brought a big smile to my face, what a cutie.🐤

    I hope you have a good week Tammie.😊

  18. So many pretty shots! You have two types of chickadees? We only have the black capped here. Northern Maine does the boreal chickadees, though.

    Love the bridge shot, and seeing a nuthatch close up.

    1. I think we have 5 types of chickadees Sandy. But I have only seen 3 in my forest. We also have chestnut-backed chickadees, they are lovely with brown. I will try to share a photo of them. Thank you for enjoying.

  21. The birds are just waiting for Spring and eating whatever they can find.
    Living in the moment must have its advantages....
    Beautiful trees and skies!
    Enjoy your evening

  23. That little winter chickadee sure is cute. Did you ever find out what critter it was
    that walked over the snowy bridge?
