Fighting For Survival

Winter Finch


-15 Celsius today. So it's tough to stay alive if you are a tiny finch. Spotted this one on the spruce hedge at Bergdalen just now, eating from a cone.

belle photo animalière, par ce temps cela ne doit pas être facile pour les oiseaux.

So lovely to see! Sweet little bird.

I think our birds are having a tough time too as they aren't used to this mind-numbing cold we're having...the worst since we've moved here. Not like Sweden, of course, but this is supposed to be Florida!

Great capture, Steffe.

Steffe - go fill up your bird feeder so those little guys don't have to work so hard for their lunch!
Sweet shot! Skitbra!

A tough life indeed for the little finch. Great photo!

Our worlds are so different at present; we have 3 days in a row forcasted to be 41C.

Fantastisk bild!

Steffe said...

The bird feeders are full. And I also try to give them bread and some nuts for the squirrels.

Tack för det Karoliina.

That warmed me up a bit Amy!

That feels a bit hot Gordon.
