  Hi RT
well we got a light dusting of snow last night. it has melted everywhere else but our yard.

When the forest suddenly gets quiet and birds take flight, it might be time to worry about a brewing storm.

scientists stumbled on the finding when they were studying golden-winged warblers—small birds that weigh less than a third of an ounce. the team was testing if the birds could carry tiny backpack transmitters.The warblers are the smallest species ever tracked, and when the researchers retrieved the transmitters from five birds, they discovered something strange: The birds had all moved away from their breeding grounds a day before the storm, flying nearly 1,000 miles—even though the tornado was still hundreds of miles away.

The researchers think that the birds were sensing infrasound—acoustic waves that occur at frequencies below 20 hertz. While humans can’t hear such a low level of sound, it’s known that birds and other animals can.

is it time to fire the meteorologists and start looking to the sky for storm predictions? Not quite yet.“Birds are really good at predicting storms, but they’re not a good replacement for satellites and radar, There is one situation that birds could beat humans: “If you were all alone in the forest and all the birds left, you should be worried about it.”

When storms force birds to flee, it can put pressure on their ability to breed. As storms become more powerful and frequent with climate change, those disruptions will grow.“They wouldn’t do this with a normal thunderstorm, but if it comes to big storms arriving every year and birds losing four to five days of breeding season, it would be a big problem for their conservation,”
Golden-winged warblers have suffered one of the steepest population drops of any songbird species in the past 45 years, according to the Cornell Lab of Ornithology. Conservationists are working on a plan to stop the decline and grow the population 50 percent by 2050.

  Hi RT
It's Popeye.
You don't want to be around mom when she's been stuck on the phone all day. She's usually NOT a happy camper.
Sorry we weren't on the BC yesterday. Mom and dad got up early and left the house. They went to a funeral for a friend. One of the people in dad's police volunteer group passed away. She had been a volunteer for 25 years. The ceremony was packed. Everyone, including the Chief of Police and the entire command staff was there. There were so many people that more chairs had to be set up outside the chapel. After the ceremony there was a reception held at a nearby banquet hall. The room was filled. There was not an empty table to be found. There was a full buffet of food and two tables of disserts. Dad says that he thinks the police dept. helped pay for the reception. Dad said that you never really know how many friends you have until your funeral.
After the reception mom and dad went to the Magnolia Bird Farm for our food and by the time they got home it was way past our bedtime. Mom and dad were both so full from the buffet that they didn't fix any dinner for themselves.
Today will be partly cloudy, with a high of 65 and a low of 47. Dad has to fill up the car with gas cuz they have a play to go to on Saturday.
Hope your day was fun.
Hugs,
Popeye

  Hi, RT
Hmmmm, never thought about building a sandman at the beach. Very, very rare for us to get snow in our location. Have to drive to the mountains for it.

Have a great day, wing hugs and a vote, Pearl and Silver.

Come visit me, Pearl & Silver.

  Hi RT... TiPaul here
Well, yesterday we did not get all the freezing rain they promised but we sure got a ton of snow. Everything is white! Today it is windy too. We helped Mom celebrate her birthday and we partied long and hard. She did make a video for her old dance teacher, the one with cancer, and she later called to talk with her, only to find she was sleeping and having a bad day. That saddened Mom. Today is another stay at home day, except for shoveling snow. We will watch from the windows and see to it, it all gets done well. Thanks for stopping by. Hugs from Quebec coming your way!
