Trying to help the songbirds get through a (what I hope is the last) late winter snowfall by generously scattering seed.

Feeding songbirds during a snowfall. American Goldfinch (left) and House Sparrow (right).
Finches at the 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.
Seal of approval.
The new Squirrel Buster bird feeder received the Downy Woodpecker seal of approval.
An American Goldfinch attempted to share a perch at the feeder with a House Finch. The House Finch didn’t budge, so the goldfinch had to leave and wait its turn.
First weekend of Project FeederWatch.
A Red-breasted Nuthatch grabs a tidbit, a shelled sunflower seed, from a feeder.
A molting American Goldfinch clings to the nyger seed feeder.
I was fortunate to capture this Chipping Sparrow, a sprightly visitor to the backyard.
