During the Easter snowstorm there were a lot of American Goldfinches around. Many of them were changing to their summer colors.

 

We woke up early on Easter to find out that was snowing out. It snowed all day and into the evening. The next morning we had 6 inches of heavy wet snow. In the afternoon we 30 mph winds which blew even the wet snow around. Unfortunately, earlier in the week, I had taken the snowblower off of the tractor, put my snow shovels in storage and removed the posts that marked the driveway. I’m now waiting for the snow to melt.

 

A few more photos from my walk around the farm.

 

We had a heavy wet snowfall overnight and the trees were covered with over an inch of snow. I walked around the farm taking photos before it all melted.

 

It was a beautiful day to ski on the Red Cedar State Trail. We had 8 inches of new fluffy snow overnight and the sky was a bright blue. The tables at the visitors center were covered in snow.as was the bridge over the Gilbert Creek.

With the cold weather the ice was building up and was also covered in snow.

It was late in the afternoon and we met quite a few skiers on the trail. There were also some nice reflections on the Red Cedar River.

On the way back we heard some familiar sounds and saw a small flock of Trumpeter Swans land on the river.

 

We had several fall snowstorms that dumped over a foot of snow.

 

 

My feeders were full during a recent snowstorm.

Then all of a sudden the birds would take off.

Yesterdays snowstorm really brought out the Northern Cardinals. At one point the wind was really blowing as you can see in the second photo.

 

 

I love to photograph birds in a snowstorm. I managed to catch these cardinals one afternoon.
