Finally, Winter Arrives - and so do the birds!

While winter is really just about a month old technically speaking, it officially arrived this week, with cold weather the first part of the week, and a little bit of snow today, but at least it’s something. And the feeders have exploded with activity. Lots of American goldfinches, dark-eyed juncos, tufted titmouse, nuthatches, woodpeckers (including the red-bellied woodpecker for the second straight day), and lots and lots of chickadees. While I’m sure they don’t appreciate the cold, at least they have food and we get the enjoyment of watching. Seems like a fair trade.

Now I just have to figure out when I get to go skiing!
