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.

  2. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. 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

  14. 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!

  19. 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.

  20. 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.

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

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

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

  38. Beautiful cardinal. Their red stands out in any season.

    ReplyDelete
  39. 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.

  40. 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!

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

  48. Hi Eileen,
    Beautiful series with different types of birds.

    That Red Cardinal against the snow is gorgeous.

  54. 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!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete

  57. That is a beautiful photo of Mr. Cardinal.

    ReplyDelete
  58. 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.

    ReplyDelete
  59. 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~

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

    ReplyDelete
  61. 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.
