Chilly overnights and rain have brought more birds in, and many are staying, even with the chill in the air.  Food and water are plentiful for them at Boomer Lake, so the influx of more birds will continue.  Enjoy them, and take care of them by providing black oil sunflower seeds at your feeders, and plenty of fresh water at the birdbath.  Please keep your birdbaths clean, too, in order to keep avian conjunctivitis at bay.
