Not much to report from Abington today. We were on the short end of the "Blizzard of Twenty Ten" here in Abington township with a mere 14 inches of snow. I had the driveway cleared by 11 AM Saturday. Piece of cake. Everyone else was texting, calling and emailing about their 26+ inches.
Meanwhile, our birds were lined up at the feeder just waiting for me to shovel and sprinkle their seeds. They literally sat in branches a few feet from my head waiting. Once I put the seed out - whoosh! 40 - 50 birds including 2 dozen juncos, 1 dozen goldfinches, white-throated and song sparrows, nuthatches, chickadees, titmice, downy and red-bellied woodpeckers decended on the feeders and have not stopped since.
We have an addition to our pet family too. Lucy has become a full time member due to allergies of our friends' 4 year old. Lucy and Roxy made out fine on their first weekend together. Roxy is a princess as you know and is having a tough time in the snow. I put boots on her which lasted about 5 minutes. . .
Oh, did I mention the additional 12 inches of snow forecast for Tuesday night. Geez. Makes Florida look better and better.
