Christmas Bird Count

Christmas Bird Count

These pictures show the birds that frequent the back yard.   My objective was to show the birds in flight as they approach and leave the feeders rather than just showing them sitting on the feeders.

Gold finches feeding at one of the replacement feeders.

White-breasted Nuthatch

With one food still holding onto the feeder the Nuthatch takes off for the nearest tree to eat it's suet.
