Feeding the Birds

I thought that while we're feasting on bird for Thanksgiving, I would give the birds we feed at our backyard feeder their due! I am pleased that though I just put it back up on Friday, already many of our birds have returned! Here are the birds we typically get:

Carolina Wren

Tufted Titmouse


Common Sparrow



Downy Woodpecker

Golden Finch
(though in winter not
as bright as colorful as
this one!)

House Finch

These guys haven't made an appearance yet, but I'm sure they will!

Blue Jay

Red-headed Woodpecker

And these guys I wish would not come around! (But I know they will!) They can clean out my feeder in no time!

Grackle (yes, he's as mean as he looks!)


And, of course, this guy keeps coming to steal our seed, too! But most of the time we can keep him off the feeder . . . it's not easy though!

If we get any other visitors, I'll make sure to update!
