These pictures were obtained yesterday, when it was much more pleasant than this morning's 39 degrees, with unknown windchill.  The wind was 20 mph, so I wager this morning's 'chill was somewhere in the low 20's.  It was actually painful, so I wasn't out long today.

Be kind to a bird.  Remember to fill your feeders as we get steady freezing temperatures, and water is also necessary.  Just because it is cold, doesn't mean that birds don't dehydrate, too, just like us.
