Welcome to World Bird Wednesday!
The weather in The Mitten has grown frigid and there are ice flows on the Pine River. Birds and humans alike are trying to cope with the sudden temperature change as best they can. The Cedar Waxwing (Bombycilla cedrorum) is a fruit eater and will seek these food sources even when they're coated in ice! The House Finch (Carpodacus mexicanus) knows that he must forage nearly non stop to cope with the demands of heating his less than one ounce body. Another berry lover, his pigmentation is derived from the color of fruit he consumes I discovered this week. I know he devours the seeds at my feeders. Apparently yellow versions of the House Finch have been noted though I haven't been lucky enough to ever spot one. These are frosty scenes I've shared but fortunately for me it is World Bird Wednesday and I'm sure to visit warmer climates. I hope things are warm where you and yours are minding yourselves and that luck is providing you with tons of magically lit and perfectly composed pictures this December!
Happy World Bird Wednesday,
