Winter and Evening Grosbeaks

So far, this winter has been unusually warm and any significant snow that has fallen has been quickly washed away by warm temps and heavy rain.  We managed to retain a thin snow cover because of our elevation, but there was plenty of grass showing down in town.  Now that March has arrived, Winter has finally shown its face.  Thursday we had 13+ inches and then overnight another 3-4 followed by freezing rain.

And with the winter came the birds.  I had been thinking there was something wrong with the seed we bought.  Yes, we had woodpeckers coming to the suet cakes but even there we were missing the nuthatches that normally come.  With our snow on Thursday came 4 beautiful evening grosbeaks and the red-bellied woodpecker.  The nuthatches are back and we’re seeing many more of our normal avian friends.  I’m glad; I’ve missed them.
