Snowstorm Birds

The historic snow continues! Yesterday, Bridgeport's airport in Stratford set records for both all-time snow depth and snowiest January ever. Yes, you can read that again, and it is true. However, on second thought, you may not need to be convinced of it. The snow is everywhere. The bad news is more will be coming soon. Below is an old video I shot on December 18-19 of 2008 of the birds coming to my feeders during the first snowstorm of that season. What better time to share it?

Snowstorm Birds from Connecticut Audubon Society.

All of the birds are common backyard species except for the Rusty Blackbird male and female who decided to stop by for a snack during the harsh weather. Do not forget the Rusty Blackbird Blitz starts tomorrow!
