How many doveys do you see?

One is first shot, second is close up of the same shot.  Taken from my living room window, they were waiting for me to put more seed out.

Poor things. They are so puffed up that they look like they're Chickadee shaped. I'm not sure they'd expect this odd weather with such late snow.

Dee, this is not a late snow.  This is a right smack in the middle of late winter normal snow. :)

And it wasn't that cold.  We got about 2 feet of snow, but it is heavy wet snow, it was about 32 today. The doveys live here all year round.  They are used to winter.  Hug1

There are 5 doves.  I didn't even see the chickadee until I went looking to see why you saw 6 doves!  funny2

Look at the length of the tail feathers, and you'll see which is which.

Oh, you're right!  I guess because the level of snow on the sill was so high.
