Blizzard and birds

On Friday, January 7 to Sunday, January 9 we had the single largest snow storm since 1989. About 40cm of snow, blown into meter high drifts by high winds. Most birds hunker down and wait it out. Bohemian Waxwings seem to love this weather. While shovelling snow on Sunday a flock of an estimated 2000 frolicked through the neighbourhood, descending like a cloud on mountain ash trees and other berry trees.
