Today it stayed just below freezing, which is a lot warmer than it was earlier in the week. I’m the one that has the cold now, so mostly today I stayed inside and wished I did not have a cold. I did get outside to help with snow removal, again, because we had a new 3-plus inches since yesterday. The picture below is what I woke to this morning. It’s snowing again now so probably we’ll need to work on it again tomorrow.
There were a few birds around, including the Common Raven that periodically makes an appearance on our porch railing to munch on suet, which today mainly just paced the porch railing. There was also a flock of Bohemian Waxwings in one of our birch trees, Steller’s Jays, Common Redpolls and a Pine Grosbeak. There was no sign of any chickadees, including the one with the deformed beak.
