The Nature of Winter

My parent's house is but a few blocks from the Columbia River and during the winter the area is teaming with bird life. My sweetie, Erik, snapped these beautiful pictures on his many morning walks. I joined a few times, but am admittedly not as hardy as he is when it comes to cold temperatures. After taking a few pictures, my fingers were so numb I could hardly work the camera. His patience and perseverance always pays off.
