I filled my feeders yesterday and broadcast lots of seed today. Wow did I get a lot of takers! I had a huge flock of blackbirds , Red Wings both male and female, Grackles, Cowbirds, and Starlings. I did get my regulars too. There were Cardinals, Blue Jays, Gold and House Finches, Titmice, Chickadees, Juncos, Tree Sparrows, Song Sparrows as well as House Sparrows. It was hard for the little ones to get to the food due to the Blackbirds. I had a good number of Robins which looked very pathetic in the driving snow storm. I saw them eating crab apples and scavenging along the driveway. I threw out some blueberries on the driveway. It took forever for the Robins to find them. No fall out of Pipits here, unfortunately. My only new birds were the female Red Wings. The Cooper's Hawk made a fly- by and landed briefly in the cherry tree. It was a very birdy day. I do wish the Blackbirds hadn't stayed around all day.
