Tag Archives: Ice Storm

A few weeks ago we had an ice storm. Since I couldn’t do much outside I spent the morning watching the birds at my feeding station. They were having a hard time hanging on to the branches because of the ice and the strong winds. I was trying to figure out how the Northern Cardinal could fly with so much ice on its tail feathers but it didn’t seem to have a problem.
