Cardnals gathering at the Feeder Tree


It was really snowing this day and the Cardinals were gathering in strength at the feeder.  At one time I counted eighteen!  I realize it’s hard to see them as the snow was really coming down.

These beauties would feed below then come up into the tree to rest and keep a look out.  It was a beautiful snowy morning.

Sparrows on the Feeder

Catching three Sparrows feeding at once is pretty unusual. If the odd one out – on the left – would have been feeding as well I might have an award winning image.😏🤔

It’s always great when I can catch one bird on the Feeder at a time – particularly a handsome Cardinal.

Sparrows Ground Feeding


These Sparrows were enjoying the banquet that had fallen from the Feeder.  My wife, Jean, fills the Feeder and within an hour it’s empty.  Sparrows, Cardinals, Blue Jays, Chicakadees and Juncos all enjoy the bounty. Oh yes, one persistent Starling usually shows up.
