We participated in the Great Backyard Bird Count (see sidebar). We got 3 inches of new snow last night and the birds were at the feeders although not so many as I would have thought. The feeder I used was a hanging dish feeder in the rhododendron bush next to the house. As you can see it is very cold (20's with single digit wind chill). I love how the rhodos curl up their leaves in the cold. You can tell the temperature by just looking at the leaves - the tighter the curl the colder it is. As the sun warms up they unfurl.
We had mostly Juncos with a couple of Chickadees, Titmice and one Carolina Wren - my favorite. If I had a better camera I could get closer photos. Happy birdwatching!
