WHAT a fun day at the feeder~ I counted 13 species, and my very first raptor!

The majestic Bluejay

Dark eyed Junco

European Starling  ~ love these birds! I believe this is a female

and the male European Starling, rainbow of gemstone colors...

my personal favorite, Carolina Wren

Song Sparrow

and conversing in the snow storm...

female Northern Cardinal

Bill Beatty, my friend and a well known bird expert told me 
this is either a female Sharp Shinned Hawk OR a male Cooper's Hawk
my very first raptor spotting on my farm, well I mean one that I could capture
in a photo.. not the best photo, but a photo non the less!
