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.

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.😏🤔

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.

Female Cardinal rests between feedings


This pretty gal seems to be taking everything in around our feeder.  The feeder is actually below and to her right.

This Male Cardinal seemed determined I would not get his image.  I waited about a minute, camera in focus, before he turned his head toward me.  Fortunately, the feeder was almost empty.  I used my 75-300 Canon Zoom Lens for the shot.
