it is mid 30', overcast and gray skies
we put out extra bird seed this morning and the flocks swarmed; seem to be growing everyday.
mostly grackles, cowbirds, and starlings. dotted about the black moving mass are the spots and flashes of the red on the red wing blackbirds
The smaller spotted sparrows, juncos, song sparrows, carolina wrens, darted in and about the larger mass snatching up the crumbs
But the bright flash of the cardinals was more prounced in the dullness of the day.
I do not see many robins as yesterday; but it was warmer yesterday
we are suppose to have a freeze tonight
