SNOW BIRDS! (and I don't mean Florida's!)


I am sick (and tired) of standing on my front porch, waiting for birds to land on my feeders so I can get a decent photo of them!
I have Red headed Peckers, Juncos, Goldfinch, House Finch, Common Sparrows, and my Black Capped Chickadees are back! Also I have spotted a Tufted Titmouse, which I have NEVER seen here! Do you think I can get a picture of them??? So far, the only ones to sit at the feeder long enough to get their pictures taken are the sparrows, and an occasional Goldfinch! Those dang chickadees are so fast...makes my head spin!!

Now these gals pretty much POSE for their photos!!

Here I am today with Pete's hunting hat on. It was so bitter outside, (wind chills below zero) I had to bundle up just to get the hens fresh food and water.

Albie Darn, I'm a Rooster, posing pretty atop the wheelbarrow.
Oh baby, it is cold outside!
Pin It!

Albie Darn is so cute! He even looks Christmasy...I was thinking you might could put a little wreath around his neck and snap a picture :)

I've given up trying to get photos of the birds that visit my feeders. We have all the same ones you do, but I've never seen a Tufted Timouse, darn.

We have lots of Northern Cardinals, a few Nuthatches and one morning we found a flock of Cedar Waxwings hanging around.
