My experience has been when conditions get really harsh there is an increase in Birds coming to the feeders, and as soon as it improves the numbers go down. So I was not to surprised when I had a lot fewer birds in the yard today. Even though it was very cold, it was sunny with much diminished wind. I will be curious to see if numbers go back up tomorrow if we get the Snow that is predicted. I don't doubt that some may have perished the last few days, and some may have went elsewhere, but generally many come back when they need to. I have had a real decrease in Mourning Doves during this period though, so I think they have moved on. Glad the worst is over, for now anyway. Ice is the worst, so hope we don't get much more of that this Winter.
