We're in Maine.

Yesterday brought in icy winds; most birds were trying to stay warm. We did see crows, blue jays, black-capped chickadees, American goldfinches, and both hairy and downy woodpeckers. I won't mention the sharpshinned hawk that visited a few days ago since that was last year. Our bantams took one look outside and refused to leave their house, cursing horribly until I finished giving them warm water and fresh food, closing the door behind me.
