When it snows up here in Orchard Park, NY, our feeders get so busy with activity. The older I get, the more I hate the snow, but ohhhhh, I sure love the bird activity the snow brings!

There was a wide variety today and I hope you enjoy the photos of a few of the birds I had visit today.

Red-tailed Hawk - this beauty wasn't visiting our feeders, thankfully - but I grabbed a shot of it further down the road as I was running to the bank.
