I was born in Chicago during a blizzard.
Perhaps that explains why I can't help but love this weather.
|Winter in the Ozarks|
|The American Goldfinch is probably my favorite bird. While his winter feathers are muted compared to the bright yellow he wears in the summer, this splash of color is a a welcome scene in the winter landscape.|
|Still wearing some of his yellow feathers from summer, this American Goldfinch posed in appreciation of the sunflower seeds that are always readily available at our house.|
|This Tufted Titmouse awaits his turn at the birdfeeder. Since the snow started falling, it is a very busy place.|
|This is not quite as inviting as it was during the summer months, but with the first day of Spring only 104 days away, I can wait as I enjoy this beautiful winter season in the Ozarks.|
|This looks more like a scene from the North Pole than the Arkansas Ozarks as the ice-encrusted magnolia buds await Spring|
