Snow has been coming down nonstop for the past few days, & of course the birds & squirrels are 3 times as fat as they were this summer (plus thick winter coats), & still gathered around the feeder eating everything they can find. However, the birds behave very differently when it snows than they do when it rains. In rain, they all eat eat eat the day before, & then are nowhere to be found when the rain hits. But they will feed all the while it’s snowing & never seem to notice it. Check out this website – it has some really neat pictures of birds that stay around during the snowstorms: http://outdoors.webshots.com/album/220560798dQFtBe.
