I do not believe it is necessary to listen to the radio or watch television to see if we are going to have snowy weather. Last year I noticed there was intense activity at the feeders when snow was predicted and during the event. The day after the snow fall the bids were absent. Yesterday was a confirmation of the past experiences. Prior to the past storm we had the usual visitors-10 to 20 goldfinches and several house finches.Yesterday the total exploded-at least 20 house finches and more goldfinches, 8 to 10 juncos, 5 or 6 tree sparrows. The black oil feeder. the black oil heart feeders were constantly under attack. The niger feeders were also very busy. The heated bird bath swarmed most of the day. The ground under the feeders was kept clean by the finches ,juncos, and tree sparrows. Today I have seen about 10 thus far.
