Spring…hello…spring? Where did you go?
Yesterday was 65°F and mostly sunny, just beautiful. But when I woke up this morning, I was greeted with a snow storm! Yes, the temperature has dropped over 30 degrees and brought with it a northern storm.
What a teaser.
Anyway, the birds are scrambling for food. Including this red-wing blackbird at my feeder. Yes, they do visit feeders. My neighbor and I both have several feeders in our yard so it is usually bird heaven. Two years ago, I noticed a male and female red-wing blackbird hanging around. Last year we had two female and two male red-wings! But wait! It gets better! This morning I counted 4 male red-wing blackbirds! I guess the word got around.
My squirrel buster feeder however, only supports one red-wing before completely closing the holes. So they must have patience and wait their turn.
