In last week’s column, you read about the plight of blue birds that are largely absent from our area today. The culprit that took a heavy toll of these birds seems to be the snow, ice and frigid temperatures we endured back in February. I continue to receive reports of people who found dead bluebirds in nesting boxes where they retreated for protection from the cold. Many didn’t make it.
