Ruby Tuesday

Click on badge to view other participants.

This fellow showed up at my feeders this past week-end.  Normally, that is a sign that spring is just around the corner.  However, by tonight this robin, and his friends, will be covered in twelve inches of snow.  We are in the midst of the heaviest snow storm to hit  Northwest Arkansas in many years.  Schools are closed, businesses are closed, and I am sure that many roads will soon be too dangerous to travel.  I brought my laptop home, so I will be working from the house, just as soon as I finish this post.  Later today, I will probably be reloading the bird feeders and spreading a little deer corn.  That will provide some additional photo opportunities.  Happy Ruby Tuesday everyone.

See!  I told ya it was going to get cold and snowy.  Right now there isn't much snow on the ground, but it is cold and there is more on the way.  I took these two photos about 7:30 this morning.  I'm staying inside and staying warm.  You do the same.

8:45 a.m. Update!
I didn't even have to put out fresh deer corn!  Sorry for the image quality, but I'm shooting through, the window, through the snow and through the forest.  Stay tuned for more images tomorrow.

  There are three of the animals here. Can you find all of them?


  1. I marvel at how birds survive extreme weather. Nice photos. Stay safe.

  2. Beautiful bird pics. I think I heard that 31 states are to be hit by this storm.

  3. Enjoy the lovely scenery from indoors!

  4. They're gorgeous! Happy Ruby Tuesday!

    Mine's here.

  5. Luckily, that storm is moving north of us with the snow...we are extremely wet here today though

  6. We've had some warm weather here and we like that a lot. It doesn't last long, but the afternoons are delightful.

    Yes I see the three animals. Had to look hard for the third one though.

    Have a terrific day. Big hug. :)

  7. First of all I hope you stay and warm in the storm.
    A robin? Wow, that does seem early. I have seen them here in January so I guess I should keep an eye out.
    My 'yard deer' have begun trying to nibble left over bird seed scattered on the ground. Hub says corn is too expensive this year. :)
