Bird is the Word

We have a colony of sparrows living in the condos we provided out back. I really enjoy having them around. They’ve been nesting and I think some of them are sitting on eggs. When the ice storm came the bird houses were swaying some in the wind. The ice pellets must have made flying really difficult too.

There were a few of them perched tight to my neighbour’s garage, under the eves, trying to stay out of the wind.

Now that the storm is over, they’ve been out surveying the damage and repairing nests. I filled the feeders and the sparrows feasted. Cardinals also came around and red-winged blackbirds and grackels, and the juncos showed up too, enjoying the extra seeds I spread on the ground for them. Like us, they can’t have expected an April ice storm.
