Birds At The Window

Well, the TV weather folks got it partly right this time. Snow, sleet, rain, ice, and the switching back to all snow. Started out with 3 inches of old snow on the ground. Next we got 2 inches of new snow on top of the old. Then there was sleet and rain, which put about 1/2 inch of ice down on top. Now it's snowing heavy.....The birds are in a feeding frenzy. First photo is of a Downey Woodpecker at out window feeder.
This is my favorite bird, a Carolina Wren. These little birds are the the most curious things around. They are fearless! If I leave a door open to my shop they come in and watch me.
We have a large number of Cardinals that feed at the window too.

This is a Tufted Titmouse. They too are fearless, when it comes to eating.

And the ever popular Chickadee. They are always around.


These window feeders are a lot of fun. The following photos were taken in less than five minutes.

Oh my, I just found your blog, Lani sent me to it. I love the birds, I would almost trade our 78 degree weather today in So. Cal. for a glimps at my favorite bird. I love Chikadees. And any fine feathered friend. It's like having Audobon theater in your window!!! Lovely creatures. Thanks for sharing.
