As We Struggled Through The Snow

It snowed this year down on the Outer Banks.  Not just a little bit, but around 8 inches of it.  Growing up in Pennsylvania, we always fed the birds during the winter, going through an amazing amount of seed every week keeping them warm and fed.  To think how hard we humans have keeping warm through the snow, and here are these tiny little sparrows and chickadees fluttering in small flocks, their bare little feet on the bars of the feeders.

So this feather was inspired by all those tiny little birds, who have braved the sudden snow that has hit the island, as well as those who are kind enough to continue to feed the little feathered things through the winter.
