Snow brings in the feeder birds
A little snow storm brought in a few inches of snow today and also produced the best day this season for feeders birds here at home. The activity continued heavy all day long. The birds included 70+ Dark-eyed Juncos that took full advantage of the feeders as well as the hedgerows of cover I created with all the limbs downed during the October snow storm. I also had eight Blue Jays which I wouldn't ordinarily even mention but they have been few in number so far this season. There were also a handful of American Tree Sparrows and up to five woodpeckers of three species coming into the suet at once plus the other usual birds. No photos today but I will try and get out tomorrow to get some.
