The Feeder Feed

Just a few colorful snaps from today’s traffic.Twitter

Mrs. Downy Woodpecker

Look at the colors!

A very messy beak.

A very active Chickadee.


This Chickadee has a piece of fluff from the nest stuff I have out.

    Your bird photos make me smile. :-)

    I saw a red winged blackbird and a tufted titmouse at my mom’s house yesterday. I wish I had the photography equipment and skills to capture their colors.

  2. Rose-breasted Grosbeaks finally turned up here today.
    The males have beautiful red on their wing linings too.

    During one of the ball games in Minn. vs. the Orioles, the camera kept going to a high perch where an American Kestrel was hanging out. He was beautiful and he got quite a bit of air time. The bird is also called a sparrow hawk, named for..his favorite food! But, I think they also eat bugs, moths, etc., all caught on the fly.

    You pictures are so nice, Father. Colorful as all get out. You treat your feathered friends so well.

    The Indigo Buntings were here in Houston a week or two ago, so they should be in Minnesota soon.

    You take such wonderful photos of the birds, I thought you might be interested in this site I found today: You can register, apply to be a contributor, and if accepted (can’t imagine why you wouldn’t be) you can submit/sell photos that can be downloaded and utilized by designers. Contributors are paid a royalty fee. It might be a way to keep the feeder full!

    Lots of cardinals here in NJ over the past few weeks. Wonder if thats a message of some kind…

    All that bird seed and all those birds must mean there’s an awful lot of bird poop.

    Great bird pics as always, Father Z!

    The second closeup of the chickadee looks like it’s choking on a birdseed! :D

    The ‘nest stuff’ in the last photo is funny! All kinds of ‘goodies’ to build nests with!

    The one with all the birds at the feeders just screams, ‘Feeding frenzy’!
