Here are some birds I've been able to photograph after work in the past few days. Most were taken at my work site, others were taken on my way home from work.

By now everyone has heard about the devastating two-inch snowfall that created gridlock in Atlanta last week. In neighboring Alabama the storm was equally intense. Here at Mostly Birds (but not always) we are fortunate to have access to a free-lance correspondent in Auburn, Alabama, who was able to send some photos of the disaster. WARNING: These photos are tough to look at. But you have to see it to believe it.
As I understand it Auburn University courageously reopened just 3 days after the storm (and there wasn't even a football game), clearly a symbolic gesture as the roads were still impassible (as shown in the lower photo).
