Welcome reader to my blog - a mixture of this and that. Now that we are living in a retirement community in downtown Columbia, MD my personal gardening activities are somewhat curtailed. I still enjoy visiting gardens, reading, watching wildlife on my walks, traveling, and occasional food commentary. Please leave a comment if you feel inspired to do so. I read every one of them.

Feeding Birds in a Blizzard

It's too windy and snowy to go out to fill the feeders so I am dumping birdseed out the window on to the deck. At first I went to the garage and got a cupful but then realized I should just bring in the whole can.

I am seeing sparrows of a wide variety, juncos, male and female cardinals, an occasional blue jay, titmouse, and one lone towhee. The chickadees and woodpeckers are sticking to the feeders.

Well that brings them up close. I always feel bad for the birds after the big storms and make sure they are well feed. We have been getting an albino house finch the last few days, kind of an interesting variation.
