Birdfeeder Diaries, 2013



Blue Jay, 4/4/13

Spring has sprung and with it, so have the birds returned to the bird feeder. I am going to continue trying for some great shots of the birds that come to our yard to eat and visit...and here are some recent shots of the birds!

The first birds that came back to the field behind our home, are the geese. This year though, the couple that visited daily last Spring, has grown to a flock of some 20 birds. However, I am thinking that these two are the ones from last year, they can usually be found not far from the edge of the yard.

The next ones that I got photos of are the cardinals...they have hung around most of the Winter, but seemed to have no problem finding the feeder once I put it out.

Mourning doves have also remained here all Winter long...and have found the feeder as well.

There are more birds due to arrive...the dreaded Grackles, the lovely yellow and black finches, chickadees, nuthatches...and I'm sure there are more that I am missing!

Geese coming for breakfast in the field behind us!

Thanks for reading and I hope you enjoyed the photos!
