Cardinals etc, Posted by: vic on Feb-20-13 4:01 PM (EST)
Yeah, the cardinals have been here all winter visiting our bird feeders. However, this was the first time I heard them singing since last fall.
As expected our pond refroze yesterday. The old open water spots are sheer clear ice. There was one immature eagle sitting on the edge of the clear ice, apparently confused because it looked like open water but it was frozen over.
Went out to take a picture of him but he followed the eagle rules and flew too far away every time I put the viewfinder up to my eye. After about two hours we both gave up. I stopped going outside to try to photograph him and he evidently also gave up and flew away.
Winter storm watch going into effect about noon on Thursday. Forecast is for six to ten inches of snow by the time it's over on Friday afternoon.
