Once the snow starts falling UP North and the ground turns white, our feathered friends, whether large or small, have to search a bit further for their dinner each day. Thanks to the good will of many U.P. folks, they can always pick up a snack from someone's backyard feeder, like this small flock of pigeons caught in the act by Tanya Voldarski. These guys are patiently awaiting their turn, while Ken Scheibach snapped a single Junco checking out what's on the menu for the hanging backyard dinner fare. Check out the snowflakes clinging to those downy feathers!

I find it so amazing how God's tiniest creatures are able to survive the harsh UP winters. Great pics Tanya and Ken :)

As I view these awesome pictures every morning i've used many for my wallpaper,it just makes me want to visit the U.P. again, I've been up 4 times this year and I'm still amazed at how many beautiful places there are to see . Keep up the good work.

Super pictures for a cold winter day.

Wonderful pictures again, as usual! I wish I was as talented with a camera as the visitors seem to be. Been away from the UP for a year now, way to long!

Hello from Mishawaka IN. As usual, great pictures. I'm with you Sur5er, our little feathered friends are amazing. Of course God does amazing work.

Wow... nice bird pictures! I give those photographers a lot of credit, for capturing the little tweeters. Bird watching recently, I sat and sat and sat in my sisters porch, with my camera trying to snap a few shots and got nothing but blurry blips of chickadee's in flight, flitting around in the cedar bush and the feeder. It's very hard to get a nice shot of a bird! Cool pics!

Runnerlori, What speed film are you using? Try a higher speed film, for action shots...which will increase the shutter speed ;)

By Lori Houle-Vial (Runnerlori) on Wednesday, December 28, 2005 - 09:46 am:

Hi Sur5er... On that day I was using my digital (Kodak 6490). I had left my Canon Rebel 200 behind. It for sure would have captured the twittering flitters! Ah well, another day. Thanks for the tip, though!

Runnerlori, High-5 girlfriend...I have a Canon Rebel 2000 also...and I love it. Try Kodak 800 MAX film...and don't forget to use the flash if it is cloudy out, because the shutter speed will be so fast, that it won't let in enough light ;) Can't wait to see whatcha catch :)

By Lori Houle-Vial (Runnerlori) on Wednesday, December 28, 2005 - 04:55 pm:

Sur5er! Ooops... I meant Canon Rebel 2000... typo problem! but you knew what I meant!
