Snow fell through the night and the temperature dropped sharply. The birds which frequent our feeders have begun to swarm around with a certain desperation. The high today (Friday) will be 23 degrees F with a forecasted low Friday night of 4 degrees F and more snow. It is difficult to keep water in the bird bath because it freezes so quickly. I will try to rig a heat tape to keep it liquid for longer.
The contrast of objects against the white snow makes the photo nearly black and white so the conversion from color is not much of a stretch.
