It Is Snowing

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.

      Arizona does sound appealing on cold, snowy days!!!

  2. The snow in these images really adds a bit of magic to them.

      Thanks, Amy. A little of the magic is due to a bit of editing.
