They certainly were singing yesterday! We were expecting a snowstorm so I popped out early and did the grocery shopping. After feeding Miss Kitty, Chuck and I headed out for our walk. Along the way we noticed so many Robins. We stopped by one crabapple tree that was full of Robins. I hadn't brought my camera and was kicking myself for forgetting it. Right after we arrived home from our walk I went out and filled all the feeders. I came back inside and was puttering around in the kitchen and turned and looked out at the backyard. It was a feeding frenzy! The yard was full of birds.
There was around twenty Robins in the bittersweet vine eating the berries and numerous other birds were at the feeders and on the ground.
I read online that the birds can feel a change in the barometric pressure and that signals them to eat as they don't want to be trying to find food in a storm.
Luckily I had charged my camera battery before we went to bed the night before. I never noticed before that the Junco's have an interesting eyebrow thing going on!
The frenzy went on for about forty minutes while it lightly snowed.
This bird spent a few minutes checking out one of the neighbour's bird houses.
This Red Breasted Nuthatch posed nicely for a few minutes.
Here are yesterdays feline visitors. Both have such beautiful eyes!
This was taken during the storm last night. We ended up with a couple more inches of snow. It was the light, fluffy variety so not bad to shovel. We are expecting another storm tomorrow with quite a bit of snow this time.
