Nature Notes: Seesaw continues

I turned on my car radio and caught the end of a phrase.
Even without hearing the whole sentence I knew that "the seesaw continues" referred to the weather.
This is definitely the weirdest winter ever where I live in NC.
It's not that we don't have a lot of different kinds of weather most winters.
What makes this winter strange is we are having the temperatures change back and forth three times in one week, and it's been happening for months now.
I seriously doubt we've ever had a stranger winter.
The shots above and below are of a female cardinal. The first shot is a male cardinal. The third shot is of an American Robin and a male cardinal. The fourth shot is a Carolina Chickadee and a female cardinal. The fifth shot is a male cardinal with his mouth full.

Somewhat the Cardinals look a bit disgruntled at the weather's escapades too.

The weather pattern has been strange. But, i kind of like these warmer days mixed in with the cold ones. Wonderful collection of birds and photos.

Your birds seem to be happy! My son noted when it is warm, it rains. When it is dry, it is cold. So no snow here. But enough of the cold!
