And we don’t mean winter, though it applies for that as well. Just as we started our day today we had a beautiful encounter with a Barred Owl right on our maple tree in the front yard. They’ve been calling a lot at night lately, as breeding season is getting under way, but we haven’t seen one in about 2 years. It was a beautiful sight on a snowy morning.
Also, many, many birds at the feeders, including more dark-eyed juncos and American goldfinches than we have ever had before at the feeders. Also have an American Tree Sparrow showing up with the juncos just about every day.
More snow, means more birds at the feeders, so we’re not complaining.
