The days are very short now, and the nights are bitterly cold. The ground is covered in snow everyday, and lake-effect flurries come down hard, even when the sun is out. Occasionally, in some shrubby areas that are out of the direct line of wind, Dark-eyed Juncos and Tree Sparrows scurry around eating fruits and seeds. Chickadees are around, too, making sure a hungry hawk doesn’t snatch anyone away.
We are now in the middle part of winter, and it will be consistently cold and snowy until the end of February.
