Today, Friday the 13th :( wasn't a great day for snapping pics. It was overcast, so I couldn't crank up the shutter speed, but I did get four shots.

1- This female cardinal is perched on the iron bars that support my feeders. Later, she flew down and ate. Seems like I'm seeing a lot more males, 'course, it could just be my imagination.

2- This Carolina Chickadee, so fast, but I finally got a pic. I always have several of them flitting around.

3- I haven't seen a Downy Woodpecker in a little while. Here's a male, see the red on the back of his head? At first I was thinking it was a Hairy Wp - until I saw the black dots on the white tail feathers. If you look closely, you can see one of the dots.

4- Another hard-to-photo bird. This Tufted TItmouse stayed just long enough for me to take a pic. I think if the feeder had been more full, I might not have been so fortunate. It really had to work to get out a sunflower seed.
