~More Birds and a lot of snow!

~The same birds have been hanging out at our feeders – the Northern Flicker, Scrub-Jay, American Robin and a Junco are pictured below. These photos were taken Saturday. What a difference a couple of days make!

There have been three Flickers at the suet feeders every day.  For the last three years, a pair of Robins build a nest in the yard; I think this will be year four from the behavior I have seen. I have been putting out mealworms to help them keep up their energy. As you can see in the photo below the male Robin is looking a little scraggly.

I also have White-crowned sparrows, Red-breasted nuthatches, Black-capped Chick-a-dees, Towhees, Red-winged Blackbirds and Osprey (fly-over). I hope to capture photos of these, but they don’t cooperate! 😦 

For the last two days, we have received at least 9 inches of snow with temperatures in the teens.

Stay safe!

  1. Definitely a “Winter Wonderland” but holy moly, Sheila! That is some serious snow pack. The photos (as usual) are awesome and heartfelt as these feathered wonders of the world need to survive this harsh climate. Thank you for all you do for our feathered friends! (and other tiny creatures that venture into your yard!) k

    1. Ninty-three might be a little too warm, but I sure wish it was warmer here in Colorado. We are expecting more snow tomorrow. 😦
      Stay well, be safe!
