Last Saturday we awoke to a furiously windy morning, the temperature dropped to the low 30ºF and you could easily hear the loud humming and whistling of the strong wind. Just the days before we had reached the high 70ºs!
Believe me when I say that I didn’t see one bird that day! Since then I hardly see a few birds… and the feeder seeds are lasting longer time.
My guess is that many of these birds got spooked by the wind and sudden drop in temperature and realized that migration is not a bad idea at all they might be gone!
Today is 53º at noon while I write this post, this morning we had our first frost, I went outside to refill feeders and felt the frigid dry air in my nostrils. The weather forecast calls for the low 50ºs for the highest for all days of the week. I think it’s Winter time for us in Georgia!
