    Lovely photographs. I especially like the one of the wren with its little snowy cap. We've had very little snow so far but we do have high winds and lots of rain.

    Pardon... You feed the wren BY HAND??

    That is the definition of patience X trust. Well done!

    @Kildale, Your first picture is so gorgeous. It is so different to view a robin against a snow white background.

    You are welcome. It is nice to see that robin, as we do not have them here.

    Your House Finch is similar to our Red polls. Ours are pinker but they really stand out against the snow.
