The sun came out for a moment this morning but it was 10 below when we got up. Now it’s snowing and my studio is taking a long time warming up. The chickens won’t come out of the coop, but the birds are feasting at the feeder. They’ve been hanging out in the lilac bush outside my studio window and going back and forth to the feeder all morning. I can identify the sparrows, and titmouse, and cardinal and bluejay, but the rest look so much the same, I can’t tell them apart. It’s wonderful to have all that activity right in front of me while I work.
