People from the North Country who head south for the winter are called snowbirds, but the real snowbirds, juncos, are having a population explosion this year. Someone who did the local Christmas Bird Count counted thousands of juncos last week.
These beautiful slate gray birds are ground feeders, so i throw some sunflower seeds onto the deck just for the joy of seeing these sleek birds.
People-snowbirds flock to warmth, but flocks of these junco-snowbirds seem to love to hop around in the snow.
Birds of a feather flock together. Let's flock together with our spiritual friends for the warmth of friendship on these chilly days.
