Breakfast Club

After last night’s snow storm, the feeders are busy today. Here are just a few of the visitors:

Male Red-bellied Woodpecker

Blue Jay trying to keep warm in the wisteria

Carolina Wren on calorie-rich suet

Dark-eyed Juncos are well-adapted to the cold.

House Finches are an invasive species,
but bring color to the feeders.

The queue at the calorie-rich suet included
several species of woopeckers, Black-capped Chickadees,
White-breasted Nuthatches, Carolina wrens,
Blue Jays, Tufted Titmice, and even seed-eating
Northern Cardinals and Dark-eyed Juncos.

Blue Jays are dashing and intelligent.

The female Red-bellied Woodpecker
is a less frequent visitor than her mate.

Chickadees are little acrobats.
It's interesting to see their plumage patterns
from a different perspective than usual.
  
A Female Northern Cardinal - a subtle beauty.
Her mate was dashing in and out of the
feeder area and did not sit still for a portrait.

This male American Goldfinch
shows a hint of his summer splendour.
