Let it Snow...then let it freeze. That's what it did this past weekend.
So glad we darted out on Friday to stock up for meals and such because we did not go anywhere Saturday or Sunday.
Saturday we got more snow than forecast...
Something like 4" which broke a record for January 7th.
It certainly refreshed things...
...and let me see who had been out and about.
But then...late Saturday...
...and all day Sunday the weather changed over to freezing rain (again!).
Pretty but oh so dangerous.
At one point travel on Interstate 5 required chains or traction devises from the Lane / Douglas county border north to Wilsonville (just south of Portland).
So we stayed inside where it was safe and warm.
There were reports of unusual birds at the feeders during the bad weather.
Not me. I had a gazillion Starling and my usuals like this Song Sparrow and Golden-crowned Sparrow. I could title this "Misery Loves Company".
The puff ball quail managed okay.
They navigate through the snow like professionals!
The hummers grump, but they too soldier through.
I keep watch to make sure the feeders don't freeze or have an icy build up.
Juncos are troopers...
...as are the Towhees...
...and the House Finches.
I tossed out some food for the ground feeders early Sunday morning, but the actual hanging feeders desperately need to be refilled. I'll have to see what Monday morning brings. I'm not going to risk breaking a bone navigating a skating rink to get to them.
