Very, very strange winter

Well it’s now official. We no longer have any snow left anywhere except the machine-made snow that’s up on the trails.

Not that much action at the feeders either. The goldfinch keep coming back and the chickadees and tufted titmouse are still here, but not in the numbers of a couple of days agao. I also haven’t seed a white-breasted nuthatch in two days now.

I have had several people come into the store asking for bluebird feed since it’s warm enough for them to start checking out houses - at least those that overwintered.

In even stranger news, since there is no snow on the ground, I noticed this morning that just about all of our crocus are starting to sprout.

We’ll have to see how the rest of winter goes, but I have a feeling that we haven’t seen the last of it yet.
