Quick Winter Update

Birding has been pretty slow this winter after Florida.

Seeing a few birds around the feeders, the usual Common Redpolls, Black-capped Chickadees, White-breasted Nuthatch, Downy Woodpecker, Hairy Woodpecker, but we've also been seeing the less common (and beautiful) Pine Grosbeaks, and even less common, Dark-eyed Junco. They are quite uncommon in the winter, we saw two at our feeders.

A few photos from the winter:

  1. I love your second photo -- very nice. I find that the common birds are best for practicing photography skills on, however, spring is right around the corner!

    1. Thanks Charlotte! I'm wondering if it's spring already ;). It's been so warm this winter!
