Even though the weather has been extremely frigid, the amount of bird activity in my backyard today in Upper Darby is astounding. Looking out the window the past 20 minutes I was able to observe flocks of robins, flocks of starlings, a bunch of grackles, some doves, a nuthatch, sparrows, Carolina wren, Downy woodpecker, Black-Capped Chicadee and even a seagull flying overhead. Sorta reminded me of Hitchcock's thriller "The Birds." So cool to see so much wildlife in such an urban area.
It certainly feels like we're in the death grip of Old Man Winter, but all of these birds are a harbinger of spring!
… just spotted a Blue Jay to add to the list!
