Another Snowy Day at the Aerie

It was slightly warmer today than yesterday but we still paid the price with light snow all day long. Mixed in with that light snow were a couple of hours of real heavy stuff that produced near white-out conditions. Terry will have to do some shoveling tomorrow.

We continue to have dozens and dozens of avian visitors (and a few squirrels) coming to the deck feeders each day. Terry has to refill the feeders at least twice and uses about 5 pounds of sunflower seeds a day. I sat at the window today and took some pictures of the company we get.

They are in and out all day long from around 7 AM until 5 PM. There's usually a half dozen or more mourning doves that visit also, but they didn't stick around to pose for me today.
