Eric writes: We've had some exciting bird experiences at the feeders over the past couple weeks with our accipiters clearing out the European Starling, a visit by a Brown Creeper, and a one-day-wonder Red-breasted Nuthatch which we hadn't seen at the feeders for about two months. Our everyday birds have included Fox, White-crowned and throated, American Tree, and Song Sparrows along with all the common feeder birds such as Carolina Chickadee, Red-bellied Woodpecker, and White-breasted Nuthatch.
Here are a few pics from the backyard . . .
|White-breasted Nuthatch-these guys have become very tame and come|
down to the suet when I'm out there filling up the feeders.
|White-crowned Sparrow-a couple adults and first winter birds are daily|
visitors. What a head pattern!
|Carolina Chickadee-a good view of the wings that illustrates the difference|
in wing pattern between the Black-capped and Carolina
|Carolina Wren-one of the pair that hangs around the feeders most days.|
