My feeders were full today too. never got above 20 and got a few inches of snow over night. One of those days when all my not so common visitors show up White crowned sparrows, white throated sparrows even a song sparrow. Of course with all the activity my resident Cooper's Hawk was by several times to check his buffet line.

Thanks Sage!

Our most common sparrow is the white-throated, we haven't had hawk troubles, maybe the feeders are too close to the house or there's too much cover for them.

I know the hawks are out there, I see them once in a while, but they probably have better pickings out in the field where it's fully open.

Not to worry about the weather, it's going up to around 50 by next weekend if Wunderground is right.

Cover is good for the little birdies!

We finally got a little bit of light snow, enough to show deer tracks. The Blue Jays didn't even make an appearance today so it's probably just too cold.

He sure does look like he has an attitude. Is he looking at YOU that way?

In past years, I've seen a lot more cardinals, but until this week, I'd barely seen any. There was a male and a female here today.

He did look a little miffed at the weather, hopefully not at me, I was behind a glass door! At least he's not as angry as this guy!

She doesn't look too happy either!


I'm glad my birds seem to have better dispositions :
