Subject: [Mnbird] Snowstorm birds

Hey everyone,

Hope you're all dug out from the weekend. As the snow fell I spent the whole storm watching my feeders and it occurs to me that a bad day for birds can be a good day for birdwatchers. My feeders were very busy and by sunset Sunday (or at least dark), I had had 18 species of birds in my yard. All the expected locals but also a flock of Common Redpolls, Song Sparrow, 2 Fox Sparrows, a Yellow-bellied Sapsucker, Cooper's Hawk and 2 Mallards. No Yellow-rumps but I did have friends nearby that had one show up at a feeder. It will really be interesting to watch the feeders over the next couple of days to see if it stays as busy as it has been.

Good Birding!
