Another snowy morning in Bird Alley and the need to replenish the bird feeders became an immediate concern. With the first early light I could see Juncos and Tree Sparrows fliting about on the snow covered ground trying to find seeds . Some Tree Sparrows perched on the edge of the feeders but the seeds there were covered too. The male Northern Cardinal, which has become a regular fixture most days now, was also waiting and I watched as it checked out all the food sources, finally settling upon a feeder filled with finch food. The two platform feeders were also snow covered and the Mourning Doves and Pine Grosbeaks could only perch there and wait. You can get some idea of the depth of snow in our feeder area by the picture below of my spouse while he is replenishing the feeders. As it is still snowing we put out only a small amount of food for it will be soon covered again.
