Dusky Thrush under the snowy weather;

*Dusky Thrush looking cold*
Today, we had the coldest day this winter with pile of snow. From upstairs window, I checked the tree which I can see my this year's winter bird 'dusky thrush.  Wow, I didn't expect some of them showed up to have the nut fruit berry of the tree.  
(I wished the better pictures :-)


These snowy scenery are the tree they perched and our little yard.


Surprised that the temperature outside was ℃-4 around noon. 
I told my husband that I wondered how can they survive under such cold weathero♪



Our next neighbor's 2 children made this snowman.
I was happy to see they could enjoy a bit heavy snow (for us here) having fun with this rare chance.  Snowman wearing the hat my husband's old one for the band stage.

Linking this post to, "MosaicMonday", , "Nature Notes", 


I got excited about the snow and took long time for this post(^^;)
I'll visit you tomorrow, See You Soon;

Good morning Miyako! Lovely snowy photos, makes for a happy time. Your little snowman on the snow day card in his cute little hat is just adorable. Of course I'm a major fan of snowmen, they're just so lovable! Enjoy your weekend. Take care, Karen

Hello Miyako!:) Wonderful images of the Dusky Thrush, and all your snow images. The Snowman looks good in your hubby's old white hat.:)) How kind of him to give it to the snowman!!!:))Warm Regards:)

Dearest Miyako,
That is exceptional snow for your region but for the kids it is fun!
Poor birds, guess when they fluff out their feathers it acts like a down duvet does for us. The air in-between insulates them well. But food is of course a problem and such berries or feeders where people put their seeds etc. out helps them, and fresh water that is not frozen.
Love your photos.
Enjoy the new week and stay healthy and warm.
Hugs,
Mariette

What pretty birds in a snow! Looks like you had a ton of snow. We had snow on Friday, too, but it has melted by now. What a lovely snowman your neighbor's kids made. He looks Very stylish in your husband's old hat :-)
Stay warm and safe, Miyako san. Have a happy new week!

The thrush pictures are lovely. We have them feeding in the feijoa tree outside our kitchen (in the neighbour's yard). I have tried to get pictures of them but haven't had any luck so far.
The snow looks like just enough for people to have fun in.

Keep warm,
Diana

It's nice to get a bit of snow. The dusky thrush is a beauty! We have a few different thrushes migrate through our area in spring and fall. They're a nice woodland bird here. Your neighbour's kids did a great job with the snowman! Sometimes you have to work fast building those guys before the snow all melts away. He must have been some hard work!
Enjoy your week!

Hello Miyako, coming to you from Mosaic Monday. This is my first visit and I must say that your blog is beautiful, artistic,and colorful. I often wonder myself how the little birds survive in such cold weather. I live in the USA in the northern part of Colorado where it does get very cold with plenty of snow. I look forward to enjoying your posts.

Oh the Dusky Thrush is such a beautiful bird and of course snow always makes it even more special. Happy Week~

Beautiful pictures, and that snowman is so cute! Have a lovely day Miyako!

The snowman wearing your husband's old hat made me smile! Brought back memories. (Living in Oregon, snow was rare, but when it happened the children love it so much!). Of course there is no snow here in Florida which is subtropical climate. But the weather has been cooler than usual with more rain. It is a strange weather year everywhere it seems.

Your dusky thrush pictures are wonderful; I can't imagine how birds can survive in the cold either, but I see them in the snow on other blogs too.

Hello...I'm visiting from Mosaic Monday. Your photos of these beautiful birds are wonderful! Like you, I wonder how they stay warm Those feathers must be pretty good insulation! Have a great week!

Grantham Lynn said...

The snow is beautiful. You took some lovely shots and displayed them beautifully. I enjoyed your post.

Donna said...

That snowman is so sweet....as are your birds. it is amazing how birds survive the cold and snow but many seem to like it. I love your snowy pictures...so peaceful and tranquil!

Tanya Breese said...

I can just imagine the children's excitement, playing in the snow especially if it was the first time.

Amazing how those birds could survive the cold of winter.

Your dusky thrush is so lovely, dearest Miyako, I particularly like the pattern of black speckles on its chest. It's good it can find some berries in your shrub. I'm always amazed at how tough the birds are in the winter. I enjoy putting out seed on our deck railing and watching them come for it. I had a lovely thrush visit here as well I hadn't seen before, such a treat! Hugs from the PNW, Hannah

Neil said...

Really pretty bird...loved seeing your snowy yard and the snowman is so cute.

Peggy Jones said...

I love the background in this blog. and the header too is beautiful. We have had a big snow and the most beautiful Cardinals, which is the official state bird of Kentucky. Great post.

Miyako, I adore how you frame the images. I find you have a photographic style of your own. Terrific job on these photos. Thanks for sharing.

Lovely snowy scenes as well as the Thrush

Marie C said...

Beautiful thrush shots in the branches! And the snowman is so cute!

Rambling Woods said...

Hello Miyako! That is cold. The cute bird stays warm by fluffing up their feathers and trapping warm air in them. Like we use feathers in coats and comforters to keep warm.... Michelle
