Birdwatching: Winter birds

Filed under: Birdwatching,Creatures,Winter — Judy @ 11:09 am

With all the snow we’ve had this winter, I moved a feeder close to the house onto the deck railing so I wouldn’t have to shovel a path all the way out to the pole feeder. We’ve had a lot of birds feeding there and it has been fun to see them up close and personal, but, of course, the dastardly squirrel has found his way up there too. He is quite a menace, however a quick, loud click of the door lock seems to chase him away pronto.

Anyway, I wanted to share some pictures of our cuties!

The Northern Mockingbird was an unusual one to see – he showed up for the Great Backyard Bird Count and I hadn’t seen him there before or since then! Good thing I was able to take a picture to document it! Do you have any feeders out? What birds are you seeing?

I have had some computer issues including a total hard drive failure that wiped out a lot of pictures and such. However . . . it is a new day, the sun is shining, and I will be back with more things to share. Thanks!
