Outdoors -- listening

The blackbirds are back.
They were holding congress yesterday morning in the tall trees near me.
I heard them talking.
I'm sure they were saying "this isn't what we expected at all."
Everything was coated with ice.
And I couldn't put down de-icer in some places because the birds pick up dropsies there from the feeder.
Luckily the mail carrier uses the walk on the opposite side of my house.
It was clear but I put down more pellets to make it obvious the walk had been treated.
But at least it wasn't snow.
