So my bird feeders are still very busy, except I noticed on some days. Those I have discovered, only by a brief glimpse, that there is a small bird of prey hanging around. Now I know I had a shrike here years ago taking out some of the small birds but this bird has been so quick that I've not even caught enough of a glimpse to figure out what it is!
However I did actually have one morning last weekend where the sun came around and I caught a few photos of my feeder friends. This winter the regulars have included house finches, red polls, downy woodpeckers (both the boy and girl), hairy woodpeckers (both the boy and girl), a family of red breasted nuthatches, pygmy nuthatches (although they don't seem to show up often which is likely due to....), and white breasted nuthatches (which seem to chase off all the other nuthatches.
Now the crossbills have also returned and boy are they hungry! Besides they are just so goofy looking that they are fun to watch.
