Our little mountain ash tree was festooned with juncos.  It looked like they were there as decoration.

I would liked to have had a better angle on the tree so the photo’s background would have been better, but to step outside to take the picture would have meant that they all would have flown away.

Yes, we have about 2 inches of snow on the ground now.  It’s the light fluffy stuff that will blow away with the first wind.  It means that our little bird friends will have a harder time getting to food.  I’m glad I had the bird feeders up already.  The cold is not excessive yet, but when the wind blows it is really cold!

Your thin island blood will get used to it once you get enough layers on.
