Snow and Sleet and Rain








It's a bit of an everything day.  We started with drifting clusters of snow, flakes as large as eyes.  Then we had fine sleet tapping its fingers on the windows.  Next spits of snow coming hard and now... now we have dollops of rain falling and sliding in rivulets down the panes.  What's next?  Could be anything!

 
 
But still, we have to feed the birds.  Here are some of today's redpolls at the thistle seed feeder.  And they do not notice the weather.  They're just happy for a meal.

The air in our yard is full of wings as dozens of redpolls swoop and dive at the feeders. Quite a sight.
