Yesterday the sky was a clear shade of Sleeping Beauty Turquoise, the sun was bright and warm and the birds were singing away dancing in the naked trees. We were walking the dogs and I heard some small birds tweeting away in the bamboo across the street. When I passed by I saw that they were Junco’s!
I said to my mom, “Look! Junco’s! Oh no, that means it’s going to snow tomorrow…”. And boy was I right! The weather today is cold, windy, dark and wet snow with icy rain – yuck!
I have been observing birds and their behavior for many years and by now I see patterns. Their behavior usually predicts weather, predators, where food is, natural disasters and their mood. I noticed that whenever these cute little Junco’s show up, it usually means bad weather is approaching – especially snow!
