Birding after an Ice Storm

 Ten o'clock this morning after the ice had melted enough to be able to stand upright on the streets here in the Dallas Retirement Village, Jeanette and I ventured out to check on the birds. Jeanette spotted this Yellow-rumped Warbler contemplating an attack on the suet feeder, and enthusiastically suggested I take a photo. Soon we were noticing several other species in their icy environment, which I am showcasing below.

Anna's Hummingbird female

Anna's Hummingbird male

American Robin

Pine Siskins



  1. I wonder if they ever slide off the ice covered limbs like drivers do on the roads? Great pics!

  2. Well, that's a good question, however they do have sharp claws which probably do a good job of gripping.
