The weather folks talked about a big snow the other day. They say that a lot
this time of year, to cover all the bases. Really, what they meant was a bunch of people
would be getting a lot of snow, and we *might* be part of it.
I went to work that day, taking my camera in anticipation of some nice snowy landscape shots.
Instead, about 2 hours before lunchtime it started to snow big fluffy flakes and the birds began stockpiling.
There are trees outside my window with berries (the header photo is from there).
These birds were coming to gather their version of milk and bread before the storm.
They came in packs, flying left and right, trying to find the berries.
Taking them to the adjoining trees and sharing with the neighbors. They were even on the ground.
So, while I may not completely believe the weather folks and their doppler radar toys, I do believe the animals.
When they come and pick the berry tree clean, it's time to get ready for the snow!
(I have to tell ya, these birds don't look like they've been wanting so far this winter!)
I hope you enjoyed my outside office mates.
