20 inches of snow=no birding for me

The weekend blizzard meant I was camped inside all weekend. I had to satisfy myself with vicarious birding through people's feeder reports to Ohio birds.

Reports of Rusty Blackbirds and Fox Sparrows at Blendon Woods has me itching to get out, but my wife has had the car the last two days. Maybe tomorrow while the snow is still around and driving birds into feeders...

On another note, I have decided to start tallying the birds I see in our neighborhood, using two ravines as my north and south boundaries and a couple major streets as east -west boundaries. The best bird so far is Common Nighthawk, but I'm betting this spring I can add neotropical migrants in the ravines.
