It was a nasty day here in New York City. The day started off with blizzard conditions and we got six inches when it changed to sleet, and then back to snow with golf ball sized flakes, then back to sleet and eventualy rain, lots of rain that made the snow about as heavy as it could be when shoveling. Gerald and I did a minimum cleanup as the the snow will not be around long this time of year. It took us three hours to clear a single shovel width path on our walks and dig the cars out. As soon as we finished a plow came along and berried our driveway so back out we went as we did not want to let the wall freez.

In the morning I spent a couple of hours photographing the birds that were near my feeder. These were today's visitors:

The starling is camera shy as it was too fast for me. All images taken through double pain windows with my Sigma 150-600 Sport and D300s. Some of the photos are cropped.

Comments and suggestions welcome,

Morris

Great selection of your local fauna Morris. One thing they seem to have in common...they all look annoyed by the weather

A good way to stay indoors in bad weather and still do your bird photography. Considering you were shooting thru double window pane in poor light, those pictures have turned out fine.
