As winter sets in here in the north the world seems to lose much of its color. The green leaves are gone from the trees, soon the ground will be covered with white and the skies are most often gray. Flowers and butterflies are long gone and many of the birds that remain in Minnesota during the winter are brown or shades of gray. Last year we were lucky, as it seems a few hardy eastern bluebirds decided not to migrate south. Instead they over wintered in southern Minnesota. Their bright blue color has sure helped to brighten up the bleak season. Of course last year we did not have much snow at all and the birding was pretty messed up. So if things go back to normal this winter we may have a few months to wait for the color to return to the frozen north.
