About the gull, I am not sure wich it is as they were on the other side of the lake. Probably Herring gull though. They were surprised by the lake freezing the other day and now they probably wait for it to thaw again. It has been a warm winter so far and some birds have choosen to stay here. Normally they would have been far south at this time of the year.

Now I see them reflected in the snowfree ice. :)

  6. Of all the smaller birds that visit our feeders here, the white-breasted nuthatches are the most fun to watch. Great to see the Eurasian version through your lens!

  9. I love Nuthatches :D Beautiful photos!
    I guess birds all over the Globe are a bit irritated at what goes on with the weather.

  11. Beautiful photos! It's been warm in Michigan too but I think the cold weather is here now to stay. Bird photography is a notch tougher when you shivering!
    Happy 2012 to you!
