This is Wisconsin, after all. And it'll probably happen again early April. Nevertheless, the fresh snow did not deter the songbirds. If you were in the path of the snowstorm then you probably noticed an increase in the number of blackbirds at your feeders today. At Eagle Optics, we had 20 or more Red-winged Blackbirds and several Common Grackles at our feeders at one time. With them coming and going throughout the day, who knows how many individuals there actually were. With rain and warmer temperatures on the way the snow won't last long!
