Happy Haiga Day!

After Tuesday's storm I shoveled a path from the front door to the driveway. I would estimate we had at least two feet of snow, with drifts way higher. Fortunately the snow was light and fluffy. I've had worse times shoveling 2 inches of wet, heavy stuff.

Strangely, I didn't see any of the many sparrows or chickadees that generally hang around. I did see a robin (poor thing should have migrated), a mockingbird, a mourning dove, and a woodpecker (I think it may have been a red-bellied woodpecker).

  1. good point, the dove also has to fend in the aftermath of the storm, luv your empathy and sharing

    Warm wishes

    much love...

  2. Pretty much our only job, too. Unfortunately we have to shovel to survive. Love your images and thoughts of all those birds in winter.

    1. Thanks, Margaret. Have you ever seen snow on the Teche?
