The weather has been frigid here.  It snowed enough to cover the ground and make a few small drifts.  Seen at the birdfeeders this week: sparrows, male and female cardinals, lots of mourning doves.  They continue to mob the feeders because it's so cold outside, plus now their other food is covered up.
