Do birds sense bad weather coming?

By Wendy Butler Burt
packed today! More birds of more species than normally come to the feeders - cardinals, gold finches, juncos, red-bellied woodpeckers, downy woodpeckers, song sparrows, fox sparrows, tufted titmice, white breasted nuthatches, mourning doves, purple finches - and the occasional Cooper's hawk swooping through to see if it can catch one of the birds for a meal. My feeders always host more birds when bad weather is approaching.But even though there is snow predicted, the Adair County Garden Club still will teach "Birding 101" Saturday morning, February 5, 2011, at 10amCT, at the Adair Extension Service, 409 Fairground ST, Columbia, KY. Come to learn more about identifying and feeding birds in preparation for the Great Backyard Bird Count scheduled for February 18, 19, 20, and 21, 2011. -Wendy Burt
