Feeder Report

It is coooold out there this morning.

It is -11F right now, -24C.

These low temps tend to bring more birds around.

So, the Pine Siskins are back in force!  I haven’t seen them for a while.

Though there are quite a few of them, and they are hard to tell apart, I think this may… may be the Pine Siskin of note, the one which was clearly in distress during the last cold snap.

A woodpecker is looking for suety snacks today.

I noted that he preferred to sit on surfaces rather than cling to things, and hopped oddly when on the feeder preferred by the Chickadees.

Speaking of Chickadees.   This one is expressing his irritation at the invasion of the Siskins by perching above and chirping at them.

    The top photo – the birds with their heads buried in the feeder – is worthy of greater dissemination. It should go to a photo competition or a magazine. Very nice!

    The picture of the disgruntled Chickadee is excellent! Very like the coal tit we have here in Europe.
