Preparing for the cold?

While today and tomorrow it might feel a bit like early April - actually mid-April, the birds seem to know that this weekend could be the coldest we have felt all winter. The activity yesterday and today was way more active than the past few days. In fact, yesterday, there was such a variety of birds it was hard to keep track.

Hairy and downy woodpeckers, nuthatches - white and red-breasted, titmouse, chickadee, and goldfinches were out in big numbers at my feeders.

Get ready to try and stay warm this weekend - and maybe we’ll get some snow out of this too?

    OK - I have to ask - and don’t tell me you didn’t think of this. Wouldn’t the plural be titmice or titmouses?

    Ooops - meant to make that plural and forgot.

    The plural would indeed be titmice. My bad.
