BirdCast Migration Forecast: 9 - 15 March 2012 — eBird

Hopefully if the Tree Swallows show up early they won't get a late freeze like last year that killed alot of them in Northern Ohio.

Just a thought maybe for next year since we got snow last June and we experienced a mortality event because of it but.... would you be ok with going around after Christmas gathering up trees put out on the curb? Not the 1s with tinsel on em but the 1s without? I know it sounds kinda scroungy and homeless personish doing that but.... a decent size pile of spent Christmas trees can provide shelter from the winds.

collecting trees to use as shelter is a good idea I always put our tree out after I take it down and put it by the bird feeder for a wind break and a handy hiding place from the cooper's hawk. The die off in Ohio last year was caused by the lack of insects when the temps dropped not lack of shelter. volunteers were putting out meal worms and crickets on bluebird houses to help the little guys.

We've been losing some to that too. Mostly we've been losing them to dehydration. Last year our water was frozen over for the longest time. The birds were trying to drink melted snow from the gutters. I had 2 de-icing wands ready this year and only ended up using 1 of them since it's been so mild.
