Feb. 8, 2010
  I awoke this morning to over 3 inches of snow on the ground which was a 
beautiful sight.  I was home bound all day and so was able to watch my feeders. 

I counted 20 different species of birds today which is a record for my small 
wooded backyard!!  Highlights were 3 bluebirds (which only come when it is very 
cold and snowy), 

a pair of pine warblers and a red winged blackbird.  But the surprise bird and 
first for my yard, was late afternoon when I looked out the window and saw a 
Sharp Shinned Hawk

sitting on a branch very near my feeders.  He hung around long enough for me to 
get a good  look and scare off all my birds.  What a treat today has been!!

Good Birding!!!
