Snowbirds, No Snow

Being a New England expatriate, I'm perfectly happy not seeing another flake of snow.  Ever.  And it has been a while since we have experienced a miserable snowfall.  (For the record, in central North Carolina that's anything in excess of 1 inch.)  I did my time.  But I am not a bit tired of snowbirds.  And those snowbirds---Slate Colored Juncos---are a perfectly acceptable substitute.  Who can tire of their profound business? their delightful hopping, pecking and probing in the yard?  Snow is depressing.  Snowbirds are the antidepressant of winter.  So I say, let it snowbird, let it snowbird, let it snowbird!
