Deja vu all over again, as they say. We woke up this morning to new snow coming down, not much now, but something like 4-6 inches more are forecast for tonight! It had seemed so much like spring there for a while. The clear blue skies that we have had for a few days started becoming cloudy yesterday and yesterday’s beautiful sunset was all about the clouds. It is all cloudy now.
The Common Redpolls were even more enthusiastic for food this morning than they have been recently. I estimated something over 150 hungry birds, on the porch feeders, on the porch floor, on the feeders out in the yard, on the snow banks and in the trees.
There were also a few Steller’s Jays and Black-billed Magpies and flyover Common Ravens, but the redpolls still are the main attraction at our house.
