The weather has been cold here.  It rained, which melted most of the snow.  Seen at the birdfeeders this week: a large flock of sparrows, a large flock of mourning doves, at least two pairs of cardinals, several dark-eyed juncoes, and a hawk.  Judging from the pile of dove feathers, the hawk had some luck earlier this week.
