Also during the Great Backyard Bird Count, I captured this Black-capped Chickadee perched above me in the redbud tree.
During the 2023 /Great Backyard Bird Count, I captured this House Finch and American Goldfinch perched on a feeder.
An American Goldfinch perches on the shepherd’s crook which supports two bird feeders below it.
I’m under a Blizzard Warning. Although the snow has stopped falling, it’s blowing and drifting. It’s -15C (5F) with a wind chill of -27C (-16F). A tough time for songbirds, so I’m liberally scattering seed as well as keeping the bird bath plugged in.
Turkey Vultures are on the move; fall migration seems to be underway. These three are in a line astern formation above a night roost. Could not get a good focus on them despite numerous tries. My technique needs work.
Such graceful birds; I love watching them.
Highlighted by late afternoon sun, an American Goldfinch feeds.
I relocated the feeder mentioned in the previous post in an effort to make it more difficult for squirrels to get at. This Blue Jay adjusted to the new setup in no time at all.
A House Finch visits the hopper feeder; both are highlighted by the evening sun.
A molting American Goldfinch and a fledgling perch on a sunflower just outside the kitchen window. I deduced it as a fledgling because it exhibited begging behaviour just before taking this photo, which may appear to be a little out of focus – I shot it through the window screen.
I never tire.
I never tire of watching Turkey Vultures wheel and soar. Such graceful birds.
