Winter has finally arrived with lots of snow and cold temperatures. Many birds at my feeders. Red-bellied woodpecker. hairy and downy woodpeckers, goldfinch, red polls, cardinals, nuthatch, chicadees, titmouse, blue jays, starlings, and one day about 10 evening grosbeaks showed up. I needed to replenish my bird seed supply.
Oh, yes, I have the gray and the red squirrels, too. A few crows drop in occasionally. Probably more often than I realize.
