This very round little bird found shelter under a holly just outside my back door during last month’s snowstorm–but he (she?) was there mainly to scratch around where the ground wasn’t covered in snow and find tasty morsels for whoever was waiting elsewhere. He or she made many trips back and forth and only rested briefly.
This is so beautiful and sweet ❤ We have a very large holly outside our front door, and you don't expect to hear a small flock of birds so active in winter, but there they were, also during snow. It's hard to see into it clearly, but they've nested in it for quite a while.
