First Snow - Looking for Birds

With a couple inches of snow, the hope was to find a local barred owl and photograph it in the snow. Not luck with the owl, but I did find several friendly kinglet and woodpeckers.

The Golden Crowned Kinglet might look relaxed in the photos, but I don’t think I know a more caffeinated bird - jumping from branch to branch endlessly looking for something to eat.

Pileated Woodpecker (male)

A pair were eating at the same tree, but the male was apparently feeling more photogenic.
