Spring birds

Not easy to see in this snow squall, but the spring birds have made an appearance!  There is a robin (higher up) and a female cardinal near the bottom.  They've come to eat the berries off of these ornamental cherry trees.  Or maybe they're ornamental crab apples, I can never tell.  Anyway, they were a little annoyed at finding them encased in ice.  It rained the night before and put a glaze of ice on everything.  They really had to work for these berries, but they have very strong beaks!

  2. great shot, the lower bird is actually a Cedar Waxwing which is nice as they are not as common as the Cardinal
