With twelve inches of snow falling softly and blanketing my world in fluffy white, my birdfeeders were busier than they have ever been.
This sweet Robin came to feed on snow covered seeds. I was fortunate enough to capture him with my smartphone. Robin's don't seem to migrate away from our area any longer.
My visitors were doves, titmice, chickadees, cardinals, bluejays, sparrows, wrens, finches, cowbird, starling, woodpecker, flicker, and a robin.
I cleared my feeders of snow covering throughout the day so the birds could find nourishment. It's our agreement. I supply the seeds, nuts and suet and the birds will allow me to marvel at their beauty. I feel that I am getting the best end of the agreement.
One of my favorite birds is the Flicker which are one of the most beautifully feathered birds with spots on their breast, a red V on the back of the neck and bright yellow on the underside of their tail. He came to enjoy the peanut suet feeder throughout the day.
