Saskatchewan Screamer

Squirrel

The weatherman called it the “Saskatchewan Screamer”! A big weather front moved through the Carolinas today bringing deep snow to the mountains, but only ice and freezing rain to our area. I think it lost all of its scream by the time it got to us.Β  I filled the open bird feeder with lots of seeds and scattered some on the deck as well. The birds loved it and so did the squirrel. I counted at least ten different kinds of birds that came to eat lunch with us today.

    • Probably because these storms come down from the Canadian Arctic and race across the US and back up to New England, bringing high winds with it at times. We had cold ice and sleet, but not the drama the weatherman was predicting.
