Great Backyard Bird Count Overall Winner & Some New Photos

I was very happy to learn that my photo of a hungry American Robin, taken in very cold weather during a cold February this year won the overall prize for the Great Backyard Bird Count Photo Competition.

The website is here -

Here also are some new photos taken since we had a big snowfall recently !

House Finch - This male was enjoying frozen fruit from a tree while the snow fell :

Rough-legged Hawk - a morning of hoar frost and a nice drive out in the country with a friend provided the setting for this shot :

Black-billed Magpie - Here, a Magpie was also resorting to a fruit diet during a particularly nasty day outside :
