A lovely, light powdery snow fell this morning, the first snow of the new year. Had to fill up the bird feeders fast because we had so many visitors. A beautiful red Cardinal also wanted in on some of the black oil sunflower seeds in the yellow bird feeder. We have numerous bird feeders hanging around the gazebo. I love to look out my windows and see all the birds in the trees and on the feeders. But, those little “birdies” can eat us out of house and home! They can polish off 5 full bird feeders in a day and a half. So I have to cut back and only feed them when bad weather is expected.
