After the Ice Storm

Those of us at Cary BirdCam took a hit by a powerful winter storm Wednesday into this evening, one that vexed us but had important ramifications for our birds.  At sunrise we could see a layer of ice encrusting everything.  And the confused birds were starting to deal with a force sealing off food sources.  Just for a while.  A few throws of sunflower seed on the ground solved the problem and the birds seemed noticeably relaxed all day.  Food and water were plentiful at our estate, and well known.  So life was a little easier.  I'm sure less fortunate birds had to work a little harder.  Most made it.  Ours just got a little extra lift!
