A barred owl spent the day sleeping in our yard yesterday.  I opened 
the back door and snapped a few quick photos before leaving it be. 
Here's the best of them:

Also, I wrote up a blog entry with a lot of photos of prominent 
winter birds from VT & NH:

This includes red-bellied woodpecker, hairy woodpecker, horned larks, 
snow buntings, pilleated woodpecker, carolina wren, common redpoll, 
white-breasted nuthatch, pine siskin, northern cardinal and others. 
Not all birds are only winter birds, but they're birds I tend to see 
either only in winters or are appearing regularly in wintes.
