Throughout the tough winter of 2011 I would often see little birds coming under my bushes and trees looking for berries or crab apples on the ground. Some of them would huddle and puff up in between thick branches covered with ice and snow. I thought they were the lucky ones, the survivors. Having the strength to feed, knowing where to find it, and staying strong through some nasty storms.
A few times we laid out fruit or seeds for them, being careful not to feed them crap or food with additives like other people did, since these type of chemicals weaken their immune system.
Every time I had a chance (dressed or not for the cold), I would sneak up on them and shoot pictures or video.
Many of the shots came out badly or didn’t come out at all due to non-cooperative wildlife, cold camera sensors, batteries, bad shooting (no sense covering up the truth), no tripod (shaking like a leaf) or simply too much snow interference. What you see in this brief production are the few that came out and some older ones from my collection.
Enjoy the show,
