To kick off my Valentine’s Day,  this beautiful female Cardinal  came to partake in  the free bird  buffet in my backyard.

Surprisingly, this dainty  Black Capped Chickadee was in search of a new treat and  came to my peanut feeder  – the first time ever I have seen a Chickadee at the peanut feeder.

Another first – this  female Mockingbird must have been  very hungry because for the first time in my many years of feeding the birds, it is the first time I have had a Mockingbird at the suet…

or eating the black-oiled sunflower seeds.  Since she  is not a frequent visitor, she was puzzled and unaware of my love for bungee cords.

Not sure why the grumpy attitude…..

Lastly,  this  finch stopped by for a quick dip in the heated bird bath – he  must have been getting spruced up for  his Valentines Day plans!

Hope you enjoyed  my feathered visitors and  also your  own Valentines Day!
