We had some snow and ice on Tuesday/Wednesday, and not much is melting because it's been so cold.  But the birds and squirrels have really converged on my bird feeder in force!!  I haven't been able to safely get out there to refill it...and I'm going to throw some bread on the ground for them.  I just love seeing all the wildlife....

Same here. Starlings huddling on our front porch to get out of the wind, goldfinches, some sparrows (undetermined species), snowbirds, blue jays and cardinals chowing down on the seed in the back yard (DH says we've gone through a fifty pound bag of niger seed already!). We even had a possum walking acorss our back deck yesterday!

A lot of ice melted over the weekend...so I was able to get out there and refill the feeder.  I also refilled the birdbath...I thought the heater had stopped working but the water level was just low.  I also threw some bread ends out there this morning.  We're supposed to get more snow this week so I'll go out and fill the feeder tomorrow, just to be safe.
