To the few who check in and read what I have to say and see my pictures, thank you but more importantly, thank you for sharing your world with me.
Without further ado, here’s what has happened in the last week in Massachusetts.
ANOTHER snow storm hit on January 12th and lasted all.day.long. About 20”.
The troops arrived in droves the next day for clean up….and food!
Bird by bird, peck by peck, the crew was here to dig out the seed.
Within two days between the work crew and the sunshine, the seed was uncovered.
Oh! Look! A bird party!
A woodpecker, goldfinch and a bunch of bluebirds.
I was thrilled to see bluebirds at this time of year. Today I went to the seed shop and I was told that I was indeed lucky. They do appear here and there in winter but not very frequently. If you have the good fortune to have bluebirds you will notice that they tend to be in groups of 6-10. That is their winter pattern. Once the warmer weather comes they will become territorial and will only be found in pairs. How lucky that they came upon my feeders!
When the winter doldrums hit, it is nice to see these flashes of color!
