As I write this the Great Southern Winter Storm of 2014 is upon us (I refuse to call it by the name chosen by a certain national weather network!) and we await the accumulation of the first 1"+ snowfall since Christmas season 2012. The tube feeder birds will hardly notice the change but this event could be an issue for the ground feeders, but they seem to be pretty versatile and will do alright in the end. Although I may toss some extra seed out in the morning as I size up shoveling work. I don't yet know if it's going to be little or a lot. Probably just enough to make driving "complicated". We shall see what comes of this latest little treat.
This Wingscapes BirdCam enthusiast and keeper of a well-stocked "bird cafe" has been watching birds in Cary for over 18 years. I adopted the BirdCam in December 2007 and have been working with the product daily, recording over 35 species locally and gaining significant experience with the use of this amazing device. I'm not a "power birder." While I enjoy birdwatching in the field, I appreciate the simple delights of the birds found in my own backyard or in places just down the street. These are truly interesting places and I never tire of the little stories told every day in those places. The birds are central to this experience, but expect me to talk about the things that also are part of the birdwatching experience here at Cary BirdCam, from buying bird seed to crunching numbers in the logbook. Thanks for being a reader!
