Every morning, I fill our bird feeders with sunflower seeds, safflower seeds, and corn kernels. Then I watch the birds come and go throughout the day. It's quite relaxing and I also enjoy seeing whose coming to visit. I thought I'd introduce you to a few of our frequent visitors...
Dark-eyed Junco--this one is quite fluffed up, keeping himself warm with the brusque winds today. He's a very talkative fellow, chirping and tweeting like he has something important to say.
Female Red-bellied Woodpecker--I love the contrast of her red cap to her speckled wing feathers (tough to see in this photo but click on the link to see more).
Tufted Titmouse--these guys don't sit very long. As soon as they get a seed they're off into the woods.
White-breasted Nuthatch--usually feeds in the trees but this one kept coming to the feeders.
Carolina Chickadee--a shy bird, they won't come to the feeders if I'm around; I had to take these pictures from inside the cabin.
We also have Mourning Doves, Cardinals, Bluejays, and Carolina Wrens that visit often, but I didn't get any pictures of them today. What kinds of birds come to your feeders?
Thanks for reading my blog, you are the best f/f/r/s/f's, see you tomorrow,
