Snow days are great viewing opportunities for bird watching. Because we have herds of deer, raccoons and possums roaming the grounds, I’ve had to move all the bird feeders to the upper level deck… which is fine because then I just look out the French doors and observe all the activity.
Little Miss is speaking the language of her people as she takes a bead on the family of 8 crows who swoop in and shovel up the black oil sunflower seed.
I did glimpse a new species I had to look up: a Northern Parula, 4 1/2″, a small warbler that usually winters over closer to Florida than PA. But I’m sure that’s what it is – the yellow breast and prominent wing bars, along with the beak shape confirmed it. Unfortunately, that’s a file photo since the little guy wasn’t willing to pose nicely for me.
We also had the Woodpecker trifecta at the three suet baskets: Nuthatch, Downy and Hairy (file photos – I used the Canon and need to figure out how to transfer the pics to the computer).
Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow…
