winter has hit early and hard here (as it has in many parts of canada). it has been snowing for days and on the bonavista penninsula people have been without power since sunday. on mornings like this i'm happy to work from home. when the weather is bad the birds come to the feeders. chickadees, sparrows, blue jays. a large flock of cedar waxwings came around but are skittish and flew away when i tried to get their photo.
