Juncos hit the slopes


This latest storm lift drift and slopes all around the feeder. I half expected to see the birds skiing, but they’re traditionalists. If hopping about was good enough for the grand-birds, it’s good enough for them. And there’s at least four juncos are in the crowd. Fat ones too.

This was a deceitful snowstorm. It never looked like it was coming down all that hard, so you’d think it was winding down enough to shovel. An hour later, you look outside, and there’s another inch on the ground. At least you could still tell where you had cleared a path. Then it’s back out again to shovel the steps, more steps, the sidewalk, and back to the feeders. Gotta keep those juncos fat.
