Nothing brings birds to the feeders faster than a snow storm.
Unfortunately, I must photograph them through the kitchen door. My camera is not weather proof and they will fly away if I open the door, since the feeders are approximately 15 – 20 feet from the house. That is where my yard ends. I managed to hang four feeders from my crepe myrtle tree and two of them are attached to the fence on a pole.
I’m not a bird expert, so feel free to correct me if I get the identification wrong.
Above is a female Downy woodpecker and a Carolina wren on the bell feeder. I think that might be a song sparrow on the red hopper. On the other side of the hopper, you can see a cardinal’s tail feathers sticking out.
Above is a house finch at the finch feeder. Below is a Northern Cardinal sharing seed with a couple of finches. Cardinals tend to be very friendly with other birds.
I’m not sure what I have sitting on the tube feeder above. Maybe a Goldfinch in winter plumage?
The snow had stopped when this female red bellied woodpecker arrived.
