Some feeder visitors we have had.
Oh, those are very pretty. We've had lots of robins in the back yard. I've heard woodpeckers in the distance. Cardinals are in the big Spruce tree out back as well as finches, sparrows, etc.
ottahan7, nice photos. The Northern Flicker is very attractive, they come here during the summer time for us, I have not seen many of them lately during the winter. Cville_Gardener, we have pretty much same backyard feeders birds. I just spotted a rare visitor, a Baltimore Oriole, in which I have not seen for a couple o years. I was so excited, I went and dug out the orange colored feeder, filled with sugar water, and topped off with some apple jelly. I hope it will return and finds the 'special' feeder I've set out just to welcome it back to my neck of the wood. :)
Hah, jusko88, very nice yardbirds! I'm delighted to see you've Blue Jay comes to your feeder. Thus far, I have similar songbirds, but haven't successfully attract Blue Jay and Pileated Woodpeckers to the back yard.
I purchased a new suet feeder today, will try to find some time to make photos to share within the next few days.
Please keep those pics. coming folks. These feathered friends help keep the winter blue away.
I'll try to snap a few - especially the Blue Jays.
Jusko, lovely photos, you are better catching the wrens than I am. They move too fast for me.
Sorry the pics taken from my phone turned sideway. I wish I could fix them.
Thanks for helping turning the pics up right. CG. Temp. really took a dip in the 20'ish. this early morning, it's now in the 40'ish. The birds were abundant out there this morning to enjoy the buffet.
I'm delighted with the feeders' visitors. Lot of goldfinches, some Juncos, Carolina Wrens, houses Wrens, Nuthatches, Chickadees, and a growing number of Eastern Bluebirds.
I too am seeing an increasing number of Robins. One odd thing is I'm sorely miss my Red-bellied woodpeckers. In years past. They were regular feeder visitors.
C.G. what kind of tree is that in the pics.? Love those image of the Robins.
I know. I've heard woodpeckers way back in the back woods a few times this winter but not as much as usual. I did see the Cooper's Hawk this morning. Maybe that's part of the reason. Very few doves as well. I know the hawks like those.
The tree is a Norway Spruce. I'll bet it thinks it's back in Norway this week. Brrrr.
Hummm, I don't know why my first two pics. were right-side up, but the third. Yikes!
These Bluebirds have got me trained; like clock work they come to the meal worms feeder daily at/around this time of day.
There are at least three Flickers that frequent the suet feeders daily in my back yard. Other constant visitors are numerous purple and goldfinches, chickadees, nuthatches and a downy woodpecker among others.
