January 2013

First day of New Year 2013: the two Carolina Wrens which had spent the previous week or so hanging round the feeders, especially the weekend 30/31 Dec, were notable by their absence which was worrying because the previous day had been cold and the night even colder. The flockette of cardinals is still around although not quite so many seen at once.

2 January Another cold start (-15) but no wind after more snow overnight. Both Carolina Wrens reappeared fairly early so maybe the cold wind yesterday had kept them hunkered down wherever they roost.
