Bee-nuts; I'm gonna start leaving mine patties in the next few days, waiting for another warm up as its been going down to zero the last few nights, as you must know. Willows and others will be coming on w/in next few weeks, this being the perfect time for a head start. Once they start actively flying again (first day we get above 50F) I'll open feed with DRY substitute. I've been noticing some popple trees opening up, so it won't be long now, just need temps to coperate.
You're right, last Spring, heck, last year, had some weird weather, even for us ;)
