Bona Dea Update











Bona Dea had snow on the ground. By late afternoon it was about 2 inches. See photos. It was beautiful to see the bright red male Cardinal birds hopping in the trees with Black-eyed Junco birds hopping on the ground underneath them with the white snow in the background. The various woodland sparrows, mostly White Throated, and big black Crackels on the ground trying to scratch through the snow for food. There were literally thousands of the Crackels migrating from SW to NE. Quite a site. One year I watched them fly due West for 30 minutes and they were still going when I quit watching. Other folks were out there taking photos too. As of this post, it is still snowing and accumulation about 3 inches. Did not go to the area where the Ducks and Geese reside. They were no doubt enjoying the weather.
