Last week, heavy and wet snow fell, blanketing everything with a thick white coat while reducing light and visibility. Many birds still came to the feeder in our backyard, especially Dark-eyed Juncos which seemed impervious to the elements. There was one Carolina Chickadee that took a brief time-out under the magnolia branches heavily laden with snow. Here are two versions of the same photo, one in color and the other in black and white.
