Damn, snow.

It snowed in my little part of the south all day, and at 9 pm is still at it, only very lightly now.

The birds were at my feeders like fools at the grocery stores before a storm, emptying all the shelves, just because. I had to refill all of the feeders twice during the day.

I find great joy in the variety of birds my feeders bring in. Cardinals by the dozens, bluebirds, tufted titmice, chickadees, all varieties of sparrows, red winged black birds, starlings-the thugs of feeder birds, several varieties of woodpeckers, gold finches, purple finches, house finches…you get my drift. Never have I had so many birds as I have since moving here.

Daily, the flocks of mourning doves trundle along the ground under the feeders and clean up the leavings of the feeder birds.

The bluebirds have taken up residence in the bird houses I put up for them. They are my favorite birds. I love that they have nested here the last two years and have produced many young ones.

We’re supposed to have sun all day tomorrow, I hope all the snow melts away.

Take care of you and yours, get vaccinated, and wear a mask. Love you all.
