FOR DANNI IN OZ, AND FOR THE BIRDS

I'm not sure what these are, but they resemble Alberta's "Purple Finch" male (coloured) and female. I spotted them (and a few other ones) playing/drinking in the eavestrough on the garage. Here's a close up of 2 of them.



I've been online searching through birds and so far everything I see makes me think these are a type of Finch.








In this shot it almost looks like 2 or 3 kinds of birds, however males and females look so different.



And all along, this Magpie was roaming the lawn underneath the above birds



******THE DAY AFTER......*****


Suddenly spring and no snow turned into MORE SNOW! We got hit with some kinda snow storm, all in a matter of one day. The really wet stuff, great to make snowmen with.

Danni, this is for you hon!

This is what I woke up to on Saturday morning. It was snowing really hard here:




A handful of hours later it finally stopped, so I went outside with my trusty camera.













Get busy, you lazy bums:



Today (Sunday) the sun was shining and it was lovely out. A lot of the snow has melted again, however they are calling for some more of this wet spring SHITE snow in the next couple of days. It won't last long, and we'll be dry again.

Hope you all had a great weekend, take good care of each other!

PEACE!
Love Jude
