The Blizzard of OZ 2011

Today's weather was very dramatic! We had very cold temperatures, snow and blowing winds all day.  The birds were so focused on eating and drinking that they were less shy than usual, so I was able to get a few photos.  My favorites are shown below, and a few more are visible in the Blizzard of Oz set at flickr.

Hunkered down,he has no choice if he wants to eat. If the animals are out in the heaviest weather, the weather will be bad all day.
