I'm new to birding, which will probably explain my fascination of what is probably obvious to most of you. We had a snowstorm overnight, and I had wondered what bird activity would be like at the feeder before, during, and after.
The snow started to fall and the winds picked up shortly after 3pm yesterday. Up until dark, activity was very heavy at the feeder with black-capped chickadees, dark-eyed juncos, song sparrows, as well as a tufted titmouse and an american goldenfinch.
At dawn, the snow and sleet was still coming down but the birds all returned and have been feeding all morning. Snow and sleet has stopped, and they're out there just as if it wasn't happening at all. Pretty neat. I thought that they'd hunker down, but not the case.
