Many bird nests are revealed now that all the leaves are gone. I found the one pictured here very close to the ground. Maybe a Winter Sparrow's?
We had the first snow on December 16th, but it was actually more like sleet, and didn't stick.

Amazing what thaw can so quickly do to an icy landscape. All the white has disappeared and we are back to tawny browns under a blue sky. Birds sang today and it felt like March.

It's important to note that this is not snow. It's hoarfrost, the beautiful result of frozen dew. These were taken on a hill top, where the frost is thickest. The world was black, brown, and white today, and very quiet.
Still waiting on the first snow.
