Well, the Red-winged Blackbirds are too pretty to eat ;)
Had a huge flock swing by the yard this morning...I took this pic as they were vacating the premises. I wish I would have taken it a couple of seconds sooner, but you can still see the few patches of that bright red wing colour in the flock as it is flying away! :) Especially with the bird at the bottom of the frame.
Maybe they're trying to get all the food they can before the new cold snap sets in here in North Carolina (at this point, I can HEAR my Canadian friends' eyes rolling at the words 'North Carolina cold snap' lol).
We're supposed to have overnight temperatures of below freezing for at least the next week. Daytime temps won't be much better. Most parts of the state are going to be under a snowfall advisory, but I'm not sure yet if we'll see any being so near to the coast. It would be the only snow we've had this winter if it did happen. I wouldn't mind so much if I wasn't so eager to start gardening! My plants all got fooled, and started budding early. It'll be back to the drawing board! :)
