My bird photos are from January 4th, this male Cardinal was enjoying the sunflower seeds I spread out on a table.



January 4th

The Pine Warbler was checking out the Sunflower seed feeder. You can see some snow coming down on this day.


A pair of House Finches, they also love the sunflower seeds.

Looks like Mr. Cardinal is asking, now which seed should I choose.

sweet birds!

Nancy J said...

The food bar deli is open again, even on snow. They are so happy to come for a feed, I'm sure they have an inbuilt instinct to know where to come.

Margaret Adamson said...

Hello,

Pretty male Cardinal! He have a very strong color. I also feed the birds with sunflowerseeds. They eat very much of it.

Happy Saturday, and enjoy your weekend!

Bob Bushell said...

Beautiful Eileen. Have a beautiful weekend.

Nancy Chan said...

The beautiful male Cardinal and the other birds must have been happy to find sunflower seeds in the feeder. Must have been cold and hungry. We are having 22 deg. C over here and I need to wear long sleeves and long pants.

Jo said...

Hello Eileen, thanks for sharing your bird feeder birds. I'm wondering if warblers and other smaller birds eat the sunflower seeds. Thanks for hosting this meme; you'll notice I have real critters today. Thanks that I can post here even if I don't always have wild critters now I don't get outdoors too regularly. Have a great day. Keep yourself warm. Jo

Sandra said...

I like seeing the snow-- from a distance! The Pine Warbler is very colorful. We have had only a few this winter, a bit unusual. Beautiful images!

Breathtaking said...

Hello Eileen!:) The Cardinal, Finches and Warbler, are all birds I never see at my feeders, but lovely to see on yours. Thank you for sharing these pretty birds, and thank you for hosting.:)

I hope you don't mind me linking up with two posts today, it seemed a shame not to post the one I had intended to post today for Wild Bird Wednesday. Have a great Weekend!

Tom said...

...a cardinal is like a red barn in winter, beautiful.

David Gascoigne said...

That cardinal is quite the burst of colour, huh?

Crissi said...

So lovely birds!
Beautiful weekend my dear

The Cardinals are so photogenic - but I have to say I love that one of the finches, with the flurry-blurries!!! YAM xx

Linda aka Crafty Gardener said...

I’m back after a long vacation visiting daighter and family. While visiting British Columbia we saw lots of new and different birds, ducks and water birds, Love your photos, I’ve got to work hard to entice the birds back to the garden, made all season suet and filled the feeders and they are slowly returning.

Phil Slade said...

Hi Eileen. Just the same here - the sunflower seeds are the most popular with birds. they are the most expensive bird seed too so I use them sparingly and try not to let any go to waste. Good to see you found time for your camera despite the falling snow.

Thanks for hosting today. It's much appreciated.

Nick V. said...

Love that cardinal, Eileen.
Thanks for hosting, and have a great new week.

Brian King said...

Gotta love the cardinals! Beautiful warbler. The snow seems to be making the rounds lately.

Nick Va said...

I'm sure those birds appreciate the seeds you give them, especially in the wintertime!

italiafinlandia said...

The red Cardinal's color is amazing!
Have a happy weekend!

~Lavender Dreamer~ said...

The little Warbler has so much good color. Our Palm Warblers are starting to have more yellow. Enjoy your weekend! Hugs!

Jenn Jilks said...

We've had to have indoor play!

Jeanie said...

My birds are stuffing themselves to the gills. I love your cardinal shot. Such gorgeous birds!

Small City Scenes said...

Love that Cardinal--and the Pine Warbler and the Finches---0h I like them all.--LOL
I lost most of my pictures and only have the 2017 ones and cannot find any birds or critters that I haven't already used. I'll be back.

I was just thinking how cool it is how cardinals hue fluctuates from red to orange depending upon the season. Neat critters.

Victoria said...

Oh, how I wish we had Cardinals in the west! Beautiful photos, as always.

happyone said...

Beautiful cardinal. Their red stands out in any season.

krishna said...

The finches are cute!

Carol Blackburn said...

So sweet! My birds have been rather quiet lately. I wonder what's up with that. Someone else must have put out something more interesting for them right now. They'll be back.

Suzanne Prickett said...

Hi Eileen. I know you are ready for Spring, but you have taken some very pretty winter pictures. I love the little finches, and always the Cardinal, which is my favorite bird! They are so grateful to have you provide them with the necessary nutrients they need for winter. Have a nice warm Sunday!

The Yum List said...

Wow. Those red feathers really stand out against the snow!

diane b said...

I feel sorry for birds in winter. I must add my curlews here one day.

Sondra said...

Fine feathered friends to have around...hope the snow doesn't stick around.

Pat Tillett said...

Hi Eileen! Beautiful photos of those gorgeous birds. Love their colors.

rupam sarma said...

Happy Weekend.

Linda said...

What a sweet pine warbler!

Lynne said...

Love that Mr Red and his friend
Yellow Finch and
Purple Finch . . .

I think I can link up with my post today!
Off I go to do so!

Lynne said...

Oops . . .
Mr Yellow is a Pine Warbler, not a Finch!

Irma said...

Hi Eileen,
Beautiful series with different types of birds.
Many of these birds can not be found in the Netherlands
That Red Cardinal against the snow is gorgeous.
Best regards, Irma

The colours of the birds is just wonderful, nature provides such wealth of colour.
Lovely photo's Eileen, thank you.

All the best Jan

Angie said...

In the depth of winter, it is so refreshing to see birds with colorful plumage - I miss cardinals so much! Thanks for hosting, Eileen, and have a superb week!

Anonymous said...

There is something about the red cardinals in the snow that is so very stunning!

Stewart M said...

Wonderful birds - I need to remember to link my 'not birds' posts to here!

Cheers - Stewart M - Melbourne

Lynn said...

That is a beautiful photo of Mr. Cardinal.

Karen S. said...

Good frosty morning Eileen! Possibly Mr. Cardinal is wondering where did all the peanuts go? Wait, of course the Blue Jays ate up all the peanuts the squirrels didn't get! Enjoy your week, hoping your weather is improving.

Mary Cromer said...

Hi Eileen, I am giving it my best, going to try and visit more, but it is just so hard with my computer and the scroll down bar being so slow. The songbirds are so sweet. We have so many that we are feeding right now and I just take my photos through the glass window. I hope that you enjoy your week~

jandi said...

So lovely! I'm sure it brings such joy to your heart to see all these beautiful birds.

Red Rose Alley said...

It is my dream to one day see the red cardinal, Eileen. These pictures made my heart sing. The cardinal is such an enchanting, lovely bird. I don't see them here where I live. I hope the new year is being good to you so far.
