Chilly and Windy Day…Watch the Birds

Even in sunny North Carolina we have some winter days that chill to the bone.  When we dip into the 20s and have high winds, most of us feel like we are freezing!  This morning, with wind gusts up to 35 mph and as my coffee was brewing, I noticed a beautiful male house finch perched high up on the holly tree basking in the sun.  I snapped a couple of photos and returned to my computer with my coffee and started my day.  Later, glancing out the window, I saw the rosy finch still in his favorite spot so I zoomed in on him discovering he was so comfy in the warm sun and under our Carolina blue sky that he had begun to nap a bit.  Not a bad idea at all!
