Did you notice that I changed my title picture?

We have had a lot of snow in our area over the past few days, and the birds were really taking advantage of the feeders. At some points I could count fifteen or so each of white-throated sparrows and dark-eyed juncos, and there were flickers, downys (downies?), carolina wrens, and, surprisingly, grackles and starlings. I will post later with pictures of the snowy scenes, and I encourage you to participate in the Great Backyard Bird Count (Feb. 13-16). This will be my first year, and I am looking forward to it!
