In between the storms


We've got 2 feet or so of white stuff piled up on the ground here, and we're bracing for another major storm that could bring us another foot or so of snow. To say the Birdcouple is hunkered down at the Lovenest is an understatement.

Carolina Chickadees, Tufted Titmice, Carolina Wrens, American Goldfinches, White-Breasted Nuthatches and others have been hitting the feeders like crazy the last few days. This Yellow-Bellied Sapsucker has had a hankering for this oak (??) tree in the side yard lately. ... The smart birds migrated outta here months ago...

Hope you are coping with the snow and wish it were much further north! Congrats on you big January! It'll be a while before I get to that number for the year. Things won't really take off until folks in the south start sending our sapsuckers back north.

Chris - You are welcome to some of our snow! We have two feet on the ground and 12-20" more on the way. Unbelievable for the mid-Atlantic.

Lisa and I have started a new chant, "Arizona in April. Arizona in April..."

Any good winter finches up there? We got none. Good February birding!

Aside from the normal flare, I had a Yellow-rumped Warbler visit the feeder today.
