The Year-Round Smaller New England Birds

Many of our smaller birds do not migrate, and it always amazes me how they tolerate storms like today. During the height of it, they disappeared. No small wonder, but once the wind started to subside, the robins were back feeding on the sumac, like they had never left.

I watch out my window-and so does my cat-at Robins, Blue Jays, Cardinals and Finches that are hardy enough to endure storms like today, and the environment, in general.

As the snow was still whipping around, but not like this morning the robins started to come out. A sign that the storm was ending. Birds are good to watch for weather predictions, too.
