Colorful bandit birds? Rainbow snow people in disguise? I don’t know what these are, but I love them.
I spotted these guys earlier this week on an unseasonably warm, sunny and altogether lovely day — the complete opposite of today’s cold, rainy, dreary ickiness. I’ve opened my photo library several times today to smile at this image; it’s been my sunshine. I always struggle a bit with this time of year – the lack of daylight, grey skies, little evidence of life in nature. It’s easy to get stuck. This pop of color and bright blue sky was a much needed shot in the arm and a vivid reminder that change is certain and spring is coming.
