Cold Weather Birds

In spite of the ice and snow shown in my previous post, a few birds were still found searching for food in the below average temperatures.  A flock of Canada Geese rest on the ice of flooded quarry...



This Horned Lark was searching in the grass on the Monocacy National Battlefield...



A pair of Cedar Waxwings were in trees near our drive way...



The next one is feeding on the fruit of a Bradford Pear tree...



A Chickadee scratches in the leaf litter along a country road...


Red-bellied Woodpeckers can be frequently seen at this time of year...





Hawks can be seen in leafless trees, watching for prey along highway shoulders and farm fields...


 
Stay well, keep warm, and stop back soon.
