Snow snow snow

That is all people talk about so far in 2011 - snow. It is all we have time to discuss as we wrap up one system, such as today's small to moderate event depending on your location in Connecticut, and move on to the next, a potential major storm around next Tuesday or Wednesday. There are countless variables to be worked out before then, but the birds and most of the people hope that one swings inland and lets us see some more rain. Until then, while we try to get through bitter and possibly record-breaking cold, here are some photos I have taken during the past month concerning that subject while at home or out surveying. Stay warm! And keep feeding your yard birds since they really need it right now.

Quiet wooded wetlands - no Winter Wren, American Woodcock, or Hermit Thrush this winter

Lots of Red-winged Blackbird with a few Brown-headed Cowbird and Common Grackle

Plenty of Dark-eyed Junco, White-throated Sparrow, and more
