Not unlike our Coal Tit.

I thought your first pic, looked like a tit family member.

Yes, they are related.They are feisty little guys, usually the first ones to arrive at the feeder. They'll also eat from your hand.

Yes! If he had a white stripe down his head, he would be a coal tit!

He's so cute, what ever he is...

Don't think you would get any UK Tits to eat from the hand, too nervy.

How cute! I'm surprised it doesn't freeze to death.

I've always wondered about that too and we've been getting Arctic Freezes.

I've heard and seen on the news. I have friends in New England that have been saying the last few days have been extremely cold.

11 Jan, 2017

 

yep, definitely hot chocolate weather. lol

I hear it's warmed up a little there.

We had a warm spike that lasted a few hours, then dropped like a rock. Good times!

Yes, I see it's cold again. I guess that's winter, right?

It's been cool and rainy here. Today is going to nice and dry for the next 5 days. We are getting some good rains for the first time in years. This is such good news...it's better than 75 to 85 degrees and extremely dry!

That's good news! I'm happy for you. I've heard about the epic snow fall in the Sierra Nevada Mountains which I understand supplies much of your water in Summer.

It's nice today; however, by Thursday we're expecting another "Atmospheric River" to hit the West Coast. We may get up to 3" of rain by next Tuesday (here in San Diego) and the foothills and mountains are forecasted to receive 8 - 12 inches. That's a tremendous amount of rain for us. It's very good for the drought and the almost empty reservoirs here in Southern California.

It's so nice to hear good news for a change.

16 Jan, 2017

 

Yes, it's very good news for the hundreds of millions of dying trees in California. :>))

Now, it's been revised upward of 3 to 5 inches of rainfall. That's almost unheard of here in San Diego. If we receive 5" of rainfall that would be more than half our normal yearly rainfall in 6 days. This should make a huge dent in the horrible drought. Yay!

That's good news for everybody. California feeds the world. Many new trees should start to sprout.

It's very good news for the drought. The snow pack is getting much higher as I write this comment. Several more feet of snow is forecasted for the Sierra Mountains through Tuesday.

Yes, our multi-billion dollar agriculture should be somewhat back to normal as we receive more rain. It's been suffering so badly in recent drought years.
