The snow had already stopped when I got up at 6 a.m. and the wind had died down but not before totally burying the fruit/nut muffins I had lined up along the porch rail yesterday for the birds. Industrious and hungry, the juncos and sparrows remembered where the muffins were and dug them out this morning. Doves stopped by for a while and the ever raucous blue jays are taking a share as well.
I had two big bags of seed in the truck to refill the feeders but I don't have have the strength to carry them to the bin on the deck. Last night my B&B guest was kind enough to bring them to the bin so I will get the feeders refilled this morning when I shovel the drifts off the deck. It's been great fun watching the muffin buffet in the meantime. Plus, breakfast provided some bacon grease to which I added peanut butter and tossed in stale bread to soak it up. That will get tossed around for the birds as well.
