The Blizzard of '15

Posted on January 29, 2015 at 7:00 PM

Welcome to New England.

If we greet you with cold smiles and blank stares, it's because of the 4 feet of snow drift that has built up on our porches that we still haven't shoveled. This wasn't a record-setter, but it was a messy, arm-breaking storm. And if it didn't bring in warmth and joy, it sure brought in the birds.

On Tuesday, the day of the blizzard, my feeders were bristling with activity for the first time in as long as I could remember. Inspired, I filled up a couple more feeders and set them up as well. Here are a few of the birds that appeared that day.

Downy Woodpecker: they are the most common of the northeastern woodpeckers.

Northern Cardinal: the beautiful state bird of 7 different states.

White-throated Sparrow: a large, plump sparrow with a bold white chin.

Eastern Towhee: this very large sparrow surprised me as I am rather far north to see it in winter.

On Wednesday the feeders were slightly less busy, but the snow had ceased to fall and the sunlight was spread across the reflective snow.

Dark-eyed Junco: these are some of the most common of the northeastern winter birds.

Downy Woodpecker: this time on a perch I placed upright next to a suet feeder.

American Tree Sparrow: a first for my yard this winter and a beautiful, confident little bird.

In terms of power outages and home damages, this storm may not have been all it was cracked up to be. But the corn was cracked up around my house, and it did not fail to deliver.

I do not know if it's just me or if perhaps everybody else encountering problems with your website. It appears as though some of the text in your content are running off the screen. Can somebody else please comment and let me know if this is happening to them too? This could be a problem with my web browser because I've had this happen before. Appreciate it
