* Project FeederWatch continues, www.birds.cornell.edu/pfw
* Rather than search for worms in the frozen soil, large winter flocks of robins will visit fruit trees for food.
* Cedar Waxwings will visit yards in search of fruit, often staying for hours before moving on.
* Juncos will hunt for fallen seed, often before dawn.
* Tree-loving birds such as Mountain Chickadees, nuthatches and various woodpeckers will leave their winter night's cavity or roost box in search of high-calorie food.
* Bushtits, our smallest winter visitors, can be seen in large flocks flitting all over suet feeders and other high-protein sources of food.
* Listen for Great Horned Owls' "hoot" as they pair up for mating season.
* Now through late March is a difficult time for birds; providing food and an open source of water is important.
* Winter is a great time to look for birds' nests. Admire the craftsmanship, but leave the nest in place.
