Another Foot of Snow
It seems there is a great deal of moisture streaming up from Hawaii. This coupled with a Siberian high, keeping us cold, is making lots of snow. Sigh...
I am in denial. I am drinking Frangelico in my coffee, trying to dull the pain. I am usually not so morose about the snow, but two feet in a few April days is enough to drive anyone to hang out with a monk.
Now, how many magpies can you see? Look closely. This was a very unusual grouping. We normally see about three or four at a time. Not today.
The boreals were earnest in their pursuit of the suet. I am just glad I could help.
As for the redpolls, they were frenetic. They are eating so very much that they have me in a quandary. It is just about time to take down the feeds as our friend and brother,Ursus Americanus , will be making an appearance soon. I was trying not to buy anymore seed. I don't want any excess hanging around tempting the bears. Now, I may have to buy some to placate my redpolls.
Henry was very, very engaged. He only smacked the window about six times.
