for the birds {sunday snapshot}

Last Monday was Family Day, but Miss I was not feeling well, and Bob had to work. Miss C and I decided that we wanted to get outside for a while.  We agreed that a nature walk would be perfect. We filled a bag full bird seed and headed to our favourite place. It was a gorgeous walk and the chick-a-dees were thrilled to eat our treats. It is so beautiful and peaceful when you walk through the forest when it is filled with snow. The only sounds we heard were the swooshing of our snow pants, the chick-a-dees sweet call and the woodpecker's knock on the trees. We both left feeling energized and agreed to visit again soon!

  3. Wow Michelle... These photos are amazing. I can't believe you can go for a walk and experience nature in this way. The birds just fly up to your hands and eat from them? Absolutely adore the last one of the bird taking flight. You really captured it perfectly. :-)

    1. A cold winter day and a handful of seed is all the coaxing these little chick-a-dees need. They are so sweet!

    1. So glad you are here Jenn! These little chick-a-dees are so sweet and hungry for seeds in the snowy forest. We feel pretty grateful they are so anxious to land on our hands.

  11. Oh how beautiful these are!! What an experience to get have a sweet little bird eating out of your hand!! It would be so fun to be able to do this! They are one of my favorite birds and since moving to our current house, I don't see them anymore. My last house, there were a ton of trees. I could look out my bathroom window as there was a big pine tree near the window and see them and the Cardinals.
