BUSY, SNOWY DAY AROUND THE BIRD FEEDER – Marilyn Armstrong

FOWC with Fandango β€” No lethargy here!

Sunny days? The birds casually drop by for a peck at the seeds. Warm and sunny? They’ve got other things to do, excuse me, sorry. But today, it’s snowing and all of a sudden, our bird feeder is the most important thing in town. At one point, I counted 9 birds on one feeder.

And three more!

Two Red House Finches

More busy snow birds!

We have the fattest Juncos I’ve ever seen, so we must be doing something right.

This is not one day of pictures. There are a lot of pictures and I haven’t even begun to process most of them.

  1. I just love those red finches. I guess the extra eating helps keep them warm.

  3. I think the bird that came to our bathroom window last summer was one of those Red House Finches. It looked familiar and I just listened to the bird song. That must be it.

    • They used to be birds from like Arizona and the rest of the southwest. But in the 1970s, pet stores decided to sell them as pets. Which was illegal and eventually, the EPA told them “no wild birds in cages!” So all the pet stores just let them go. Now, they live everywhere from San Francisco to Toronto to Boston and everywhere else. The pet store people just opened the cages and let the birds free … everywhere. So now, they live everywhere.

  5. I adore your birdie shots, and those of the sneaky squirrels! Thanks for providing a bright spot in an otherwise rather grim weekend. πŸ™‚

  6. Your bird pictures are really magnificent — so many birds, so beautifully captured. I’m also fascinated by the background in many of the shots — great enhancement of the photo itself!
