Finch in  her  muted winter colors.

December  2015

As winter approaches the backyard buffet changes to black oiled sunflowers seeds and suet for energy and added fat for warmth.  Water is always  is needed but it is time to put the heater in it so my feathered friends can enjoy their “hot tub” once again.

The Nuthatch  comes to dine  daily now as the days are cooler.  I  discovered the  nuthatch loves peanuts and will keep making continuous trips to the feeder until she has taken them all!

The Black Capped Chickadee  is so fast that it is difficult to photograph.   This was a lucky shot as she gracefully flees with her snack.

Backyard birding is always free entertainment just outside my window!

Thanks for reading, please  feed the birds, if you can,  as food and water become scarce this winter.
