Four and Twenty Blackbirds and Grackles and Redwings and Cowbirds...
We received about 17 inches of snow this week-end, so it's difficult for birds to find food right now. While The Husband and neighbors were digging out the driveways, I was digging out the bird feeders. I also threw a lot of seed on top of the snow, and was treated to a day of amazing bird watching.
The photo shows grackles, cowbirds, and redwing blackbirds.
The video below give you a better idea of just how many birds we are getting. This was taken from the kitchen window.
