Male Eastern Bluebird
With a light snow falling, I headed out to see what I could find late this morning. At my first stop I found a mixed flock of titmice and juncos feeding on the ground. After mounting the camera to the tripod and closing the distance I was watching intently for a photo opportunity when this male eastern bluebird lit on a nearby snow dusted branch.

A moment later the female arrived, perching on a multiflora rose branch just below the male and began feeding on the rose hips.

While multiflora rose are considered by humans as an obnoxious invasive species, I am sure that the bluebirds would disagree.
