The following three kinds of birds are regular visitors to our feeder, especially when it snows like it did yesterday. Not much fell, less than 2 inches (5 cm), but enough to double my commute time and to cover everything with a white coat that has already melted by a half today.

Unlike the Juncos who only come in the winter, Carolina Chickadees live all year round in our area, and there may be more of them than of any other bird.

Then Blue Jays, of course, with their piercing jeers as they call one another.
