The beautiful and recognizable
staring right at me, as they are very wary, and only just recently
began coming to the feeder with me there snapping away.
I counted 6 males in the trees, and even more females
Putting out whole kernel corn for the squirrels, I saw 4 bluejays
there snatching up those kernels.
and another... love these guys
not the best photo, but one of my all time favorites
the Carolina Wren ~ I purchased some dried mealworms
SOOO expensive, and put them out, no one took any, I was disappointed as I felt maybe I wasted my money...the feeder tipped over, and lo and behold, look who showed up to clean them up!
so I guess mealworms go on the ground not the feeder!
Mourning doves~ I wonder if they are a pair? spring is coming!
Dark eyed Junco...love these guys/gals
Male Downy Woodpecker perched on the feeder aiming for
the suet cage...
then...three new birds for me, sorta...
the Tree Sparrow, you can tell the difference between this one and the Field Sparrow by the color of the beak, this Tree Sparrow's beak has a yellow bottom!
This one is the White-Throated Sparrow,
there are two forms, White crowned and Tan crowned...
this is the Tan Crowned as it has a yellow forehead, the
White crowned does not...
Song sparrow~not new for me.. but first time I actually
So similar but so very different!
