Howdy and welcome to everyone who has seen fit to follow me. I deeply appreciate your making time in your lives to see my photos and read my comments.
An unpublished photo from four years ago today. An American Goldfinch visited our nyger seed feeder.
It’s hard times to be a songbird in our part of the world. While our normal high temperature is around freezing we have not been above -5C for 13 days now. We have filled all four feeders at least once daily during this time, often twice daily. I have not yet been able to take a good photo of any of our many visitors; here is a photo I took years ago of a Northern Cardinal after an early April snowstorm.
Something a mere human cannot detect causes a flock of Common Grackles to take flight.
This little songbird, I believe a Tennessee Warbler, had no fear, remarkably felt no need to escape when another person and I approached it.

I was too slow to capture this Blue Jay before it moved.
I feed the birds year round, though less diligently in the warm months when multiple food sources are available.
