Snowy Day in North Texas

It started snowing about 6:45 AM and by 9:00 AM, this was the view out my back door. If you look very closely, you can see the American Goldfinch on the branch just above the post, getting ready to indulge in the black oil sunflower seeds in the tube feeder in the picture.
There were between 50 and 70 small birds on and under my feeders to the side of the house (juncos, sparrows, doves and finches, primarily).
I went out a bit ago to refill one of my suet feeders, but I can see that by lunch time all of my seed feeders will need to be restocked. I had planned a trip to Dallas today for a meeting and instead will be working at home and watching birds. Darn the luck!
Good birding!
