Yesterday morning, I spotted a Red-Tailed Hawk flying low through my back yard. That was cool. Mid-day, I listened as a Northern Flicker chirped at the top of the trees around our home. He stopped by our suet and had a bite of breakfast before resuming his song. Goldfinches have returned, a little dull in color but I’m happy all the same.
And today? We’re supposed to get 4-6 inches of snow. The last time this happened, I was a wee toddler.
Yes, that’s right, it was this day back in 1972, we received 10 inches of snow.
My poor birds.
