When I awoke yesterday morning, there was no doubt that the weather forecast had again been accurate. It was snowing and blowing and visibility here on the farm was almost zero.
My computer is situated close to our front door and just in front of the porch I have a few bird feeders and hanging seed bells. As I sat there I was amazed to see so many birds …… male and female cardinals, blue jays, doves, gold finches, chickadees, a downy woodpecker, a hairy woodpecker, numerous juncos, a starling, and a tree sparrow. Birds which normally will not share feeders seemed willing to tolerate one another as the storm swirled the light snow around them.
From experience, I know that the minute I approach my feeders that most of the feathered visitors leave until I’m back in the house. I decided to try taking photos through the windows of the 2 doors. I knew that they wouldn’t be very good quality but that they would “tell a story”. Above are some of the better photos.
