1.28.15 Bird Nerd Moment - Juno has passed
South Yarmouth, MA

Thank you utility companies!  We did not lose power throughout the wild blizzard that Juno was!  Though the birds don't have the luxury of a warm home, their survival tactics saw them through the snow, wind and freezing temperatures.  Digging ourselves out also allowed for more sightings of flying friends all over our yard.  We all have our priorities, and naturally, I dug out trails so I could fill the seed feeder and the suet feeder.  Normally the feeder is about 6 feet off the ground... but after the drifting of the snow, there was less than two feet between the top of the snow and the bottom of the feeder.  WHAT A STORM!  Of course, I felt the need to photo-document.  I'm obsessed.  Hope it is warm where you are, whether it's in your cozy house or in a tropical destination if you're lucky!  (double click photos to enlarge)

My List:
House Sparrow
Black-capped Chickadee
Song Sparrow
Northern Cardinal
Blue Jay
Mourning Dove

The space between the feeder and the snowdrift is less than two feet.
