of birds and blizzards

We were inside, snug and warm, during the blizzard. It started Sunday night and raged all day Monday with winds clocked at 100k.  Schools, colleges and businesses were cancelled.

We didn’t see a car pass by all day long – the whole Island was shut down.

But at the bird feeders? A very different story!

I sometimes wonder how my little feathered friends survive in cold weather. They’re so tiny and the winter winds so harsh. But, they’re an amazing bit of creation and  wonderfully adapted to thrive in even our coldest winters.

I’m so glad they don’t all fly away south. They’re pleasant company all year long, but in winter they’re especially welcome.

  1. Beautiful shots, Kathie. Our feeders were surprisingly busy, too, but mostly with juncoes and chickadees and goldfinches (no red-polls!). The jays and doves seemed to be lying low.What a wind we had! I did lose one feeder overnight but managed to track it down. :)Enjoy your day!
