Since the month of september i've been getting about 8 chickadees, 2 cardinals, 2 downy woodpeckers, 2 american goldfinches and about 20 sparrows daily.
Last sunday(december 16) We got hit by a big snow storm up here in Montreal,Quebec,Canada. We received about 40 cm(Almost 16 inches) of snow. During the storm the birds went crazy at the feeders. As soon as the storm ended everybody disappeared. Ok the temperature stayed at about -15c(5F), but very rare bird sittings !!!
Today(december 21), temperature -5 c (23F). All hell broke loose !! 8 Chickadees, 6 woodpeckers, 2 cardinals, 1 nuthatch, 3 american goldfinches, 1 brown creeper, 20 sparrows and 15 starlings !!!
So two questions ??? I thought that birds feed more when it was really cold. And whats your experience after a storm ??
