Snow bird

The snow has continued to fall off and on since yesterday. The narrow side roads are still white and fluffy with recently fallen flakes. Although the sun has shone in the patches of blue sky, it is now beginning to get colder. Where the snow has been cleared here and there on pathways the ice is uncompromisingly treacherous and each footstep is perilous. I have managed to crunch around a little and capture this feather-plumped Wood Pigeon … looking for something to eat.

I guess it's winter everywhere.

Poor thing must be having a heck of a time finding a meal in that snow. Love the shots.
