Birds

We have bird feeders around the house and I love to watch the birds.  There are two seed feeders outside the kitchen window and a hummingbird feeder.  There are two more hummingbird feeders and a suet feeder where I can see them from my office window.

It was snowing this morning, so I filled the feeders, then tried to take pictures of the birds through the window.  We have mostly chickadees and finches, with some nuthatches and juncos, towhees, flickers, bushtits, and jays thrown into the mix.  Sometimes we get birds we don't recognize and go to the handy bird book in the cupboard to try to identify them.

The birds were hungry today, and we especially had a bunch of them right before it started to get dark.


This is a little like "Where's Waldo?"  There are brown birds and black and white birds sitting on the feeder perches and in the brown branches of the tree on a snowy background.  It's hard to see them all.



 The hummingbirds were much happier after I fixed the feeders.  They didn't much like this.
