The rest of New England is being HAMMERED by a snowstorm, while we, up here in Northern New Hampshire are looking at grass and forest floor. What gives?
The birds are keeping me cheered up though. This weekend is when New Hampshire does it's Backyard Bird Count. I've been busy trying to count Red Polls. There is a whole flock of about 20 or 30 that refuse to sit still long enough to be counted!
Then yesterday I received an e-mail from my fellow Master Gardener, Laura Richardson. She wrote this wonderful piece about a Blue Jay that was unfortunate enough to fly into one of her windows. It is both a sad and unusual story about death and wild-life. She calls it "Crashing the Blue Jay's Wake." Go there and see what you think!
