MORE BIRDS – Marilyn Armstrong

So even though I didn’t shoot any more pictures today, I shot so many yesterday I’m not running out anytime soon.

We are actually expecting our first serious snowstorm next weekend. Pretty much the right time of year, too.

Although we have had years when we had serious snow on the ground from before Thanksgiving, many years our first heavy snow is the end of January and beginning of February.

March is also a heavy snow month and we don’t really get much of a whiff of spring until May and even then, spring usually lasts an afternoon. The next day, it’s summer.

That wasn’t true last year, though. It stayed winter until it was absolutely summer. The spring flowers all bloomed in July.

When the big bird eats, the other birds wait. Not far away, mind you … but they wait.

Despite the absence of snow so far, winter isn’t too far off the rails. Yet. I guess we’ll know soon enough.

    1. It’s amazing how comfortable they are — as long as I’m on the OTHER SIDE OF THE GLASS. I like the way the long-beaked birds know exactly which seed they want and pull it out from all the others. They all have favorites.
