Every time I looked out the window today, I saw beautiful birds. The Bullock's Orioles were thick. I saw as many as 4 at a time.
The Western Tanagers were also out in numbers.
Even the Hermit Thrush was back.
And I have to admit - if it was the awful snow and cold that caused this phenomenal showing of beautiful birds - then I guess I'll put up with it - maybe even welcome it.
