It's For the Birds!

I've made a strange discovery this winter. No, I didn't discover the best acne treatment, you silly reader! What I did discover is absolutely NO Cardinals and NO Blue Jays have visited my bird feeders this year. Well, none that I've seen anyway. In fact, the only birds I've seen at my feeder are Juncos, Sparrows, and one rather annoying Red-Bellied Woodpecker. Yes, the Woodpecker is beautiful. The reason I say it is annoying is because after it visits my feeder, it proceeds to come peck on my HOUSE! Seriously. It comes and pecks on my siding, my windows, and even my front door! It literally sits on my step and pecks on the front door! I wonder if it wants a cup of coffee?!?! Anyway, I can't figure out for the life of me where the Cardinals and Blue Jays are!!! In regards to the weather, it has definitely been a strange and unusual winter... a.k.a. the weather has been CRAPPY. I wonder if that's why these species have not been visiting. I've seen a few Cardinals here and there when driving to work, but when I think about it, I haven't seen a single Blue Jay. It's weird, I tell ya!

Wow, you really know your birds, I can't tell them apart really unless they're swans or chickens. Too bad no blue birds.

Funny...now that you mention it...I haven't seen an Cardinals or Blue Jays around my place either this year.


Wait...I know my problem...they don't live out west 8v) Seriously, that is strange. I'll have to check with others I know in your neck of the woods to see if they see them or not.
