We have very cold days mixed with slightly warmer days, the frigid wind from the North can turn a bright sunny day into an icy Arctic day in just hours!
My backyard is almost deserted from birds, compared to previous years. They are there because I see them flying from trees and bushes but I guess they rather be sheltered and save calories. I also know that they are eating from the feeders.
The lower part of my backyard is still filled with leaves, that place traps a lot of leaves that the wind flies around from a variety of trees. I can leave that untouched until the next Spring, no problem!
“Can’t wait for the next Spring!”
