Birds on a Farm

It was a cold afternoon when we drove down to a farm in Vernon to do some birding. They had just harvested the last of the corn and one of the dirt roads was covered in kernels. Lots of birds were taking advantage of this! Enjoy the pix!

  1. Love your photos. I miss the Eastern birds in a winter rural setting.
    There is so much to notice and appreciate in nature. Taking time to appreciate them can be like a spirit filled meditation for the soul.

  2. Thank you so much for sharing these wonderful photos with this city girl.

    I love our city birds as well and am always amazed at how they and the other animals here manage to get along in what is often a tough environment for little creatures.
