Today has been and still is a very snowy day, fulfilling the weatherman's winter storm warning prediction of up to 25 cm of snow for today!making our trees in Bird Alley a winter wonderland scene! Whwn "lo and behold", much to my surprise I saw a handsome first winter sighting of a Northern Shrike in our trees in Bird Alley. Thses pictures are from an old 2007 photo file but they show the bird and trees exactly as how they looked today. The only action we saw from this predataor was of it flyingabout from branch to branch,. Th only other birds we saw today were little Tree Sparrrows and Goldfnch. I'm wondering where all the little Redpolls are?Tomorrow will be a very busy day digging our vehicles out from under all this snow!
