This morning I had about 2/3 fewer birds at my feeders.  This afternoon activity has picked up significantly but I’m not seeing as many of my usuals.  I do have more starlings.

We had minus 13 degrees last night near Smithville Lake and there was a tremendous decrease in the number of birds at my feeder this morning!  I am estimating they decreased from 175-200 individuals to around 65-70. I observed for about 3 hours or so.  I also had a couple of Juncos with snow frozen to their backs at the feeder.  I have been feeding them a significant amount of seed, etc... around 3-4 times a day during this super cold spell.

Anyone else noticing a significant difference?

Thankfully, the cold is diminishing and Spring is near....March 1st in my opinion!!
