Yesterday the weather was cold and sunny but the birds could tell snow was coming.
Seed and fruit-eating birds were busy chowing down at the feeders and fruit trees. Birds of prey patrolled those areas looking for lunch.
When all the little birds flush at once, look for a hawk.
Perhaps it will be an immature Cooper’s hawk like this one.
