The day before the arctic deep freeze descended again on our region and the temperature was still hovering around 30 F, I heard a cheery chorus of birds singing in the tall pines near the entrance of our driveway. Glancing up I saw what looked like pink puffy ornaments hanging high up in the branches, which on closer inspection tuned out to be a company House Finches, celebrating spring perhaps a little early.

A male Common Redpoll appeared at our feeder
Dark-eyed Juncos have been turning up every day.
And this is a Brown Adult Female
The balmy weather only lasted about one day. Now we are back in the deep freeze -- important to keep the feeders and suet nets stocked.
