This was supposed to be my big day for visiting the Allegheny Front Hawk Watch near Central City, PA but the weather in the mountains and in northern Pennsylvania is dreadful right now.
Yesterday’s news of 4.5 inches of snow in State College — and more on the way — sent everyone scrambling to cancel outdoor activities across the state. Here in Pittsburgh where it’s cold and rainy today’s neighborhood cleanup was canceled too.
Everything is on hold. So is migration.
I hope the birds who are waiting out the storm survive these days of bad weather. It will be hard for them to find something to eat under all that snow.
