…And The Birds Are Still Happy
I checked on our vegetable garden early last week and was happy to see the garlic I put in last October came up. The Daffodils and tulips have also pushed themselves above the soil. But Mother Nature doesn’t seem to give up on winter just yet, she dumped a whole load of snow on us again last Friday. The storm ‘Saturn’, with just a winter storm advisory, has dropped around 10 inches of snow over night. The vegetables and flowers, were fooled by a few days of warm daytime temperature, have disappeared under the snow again.
Our avian friends who have started to claim territory and housing were force to make a truce between them. Yes, they will have to eat together at a few feeders we put up for them in winter since snow has covered everything else. With snow still falling, they patiently wait their turn at the feeders. Here are some of them….

They must be very grateful for your food. Love the cardinals in the snow.
We only put a lot of seed and suet feeders up during winter then reduce them down to one of each type from late spring onward. We want to help them out when food are not abundant but don’t want them to depend on us when there are plenty of food around. I’m not sure if they are grateful for the food but they do help us on pest control in the garden. It’s a great relationship between us.
Winter’s grip is strong this year. Great pictures of the birds. We have the same kinds of birds at our feeder and the neighborhood is full of robins. They’re so fun to watch but I can’t seem to ever get a good photograph of them.
Thank you. I think we’re in the same avian zone, if not plant zone. I haven’t seen any Robins yet; they should be around early next month. I love them. They and the Grey Catbirds have been working in the garden with me all these years. I do the digging or raking and they just follow, picking off grubs and insects.
