Not much snow fell, somewhat less than 2 in (5 cm), but the cold is staying with temperatures in the teens and twenties (-10 C to -5 C). Nothing is melting. Many birds came to our feeder, and I even saw a new one that was gray with black wings. It was too quick and only appears as a blur in a shot I took.

But Mr. Blue and Mr. Red were there of course and lingered long enough for me to photograph them leisurely.

Mr. Red especially took his time, even checking out the photographer several times.

A Tufted Titmouse patiently waited for its turn at the feeder.
