Check your birdfeeders after the rain/snow/freezePosted Friday, December 12, 2008, at 8:26 AM
Early this morning I noticed the Northern side of our bird feeders full of snow. About 30 minuted later I realized that not many birds were coming down at all, so I checked the feeders out more closely.
Between the rain, snow and freeze all sides were block, so I just spent the last 45 minutes or so breaking free all the frozen snow and wet seed. The finch already pecked a hole through our bag feeder to make their own hole. Time for a replacement, 'cause when it thaws the seed will pour out easily.
Beautiful scenery, though it won't last long. Actually, I like that. Having lived some time in colder climates I used to get tired of dirty snow lingering on until March.
