It's been quite cold here lately but we somehow avoided much snow. Looking out the window, I mostly see bluejays and cardinals. I try to discourage the squirrels because me and my neighbours have fruit trees. They like to tear open my immature pears only to eat the seeds which leaves a mess and ruins the fruit for me or birds.We had 5" of snow (fair amount for Virginia) and followed by freezing rain/sleet today. The weekend and nest week are wet as well. I'm refilling feeders every other day, about 15 pounds of feed a week. Have a ton of finches, woodpeckers, doves, cardinals, and so on here now. Funny how they come out of nowhere when the feeders go up. Of course the squirrels love the feeders as well.
