There was an unexpected veil of snow settled on everything yesterday (I wasn’t expecting it).
It was warm, too, and that kind of snow that falls in huge, feathery flakes gets heavy. Awful to drive in. It’s very hard on my bird protection
Surprise, no birds are outside! I have to untether the netting when it snows like this and drop it down inside the fence. I’ve learned to tie quick release knots, so it’s not much slower than walking around the garden. Then I hoist it back up when it melts.
A very small rabbit has been passing the deck. Recently; the snow is already filling its tracks. That’s nice. There’s one large rabbit around, but it’s nice to know there’s a new generation.
The blue jays have resorted to the suet. I can tell they don’t like it that it spins around when they get on. The birds have a bit of a harder time in the “deep” (deep for them) snow. The grosbeaks are still here in huge numbers, in the morning.
