I know that if you live in the north, you never want to see snow again -- or at least not for rather awhile!
But indulge me with a look at some birds I saw while we were in the Berkshires back in March.
All of these were on the deck or yard of Rick's brother and his wife and all pretty standard ones.
I love the cardinals, male and female.
It appeared that this must be quite a hot spot for these beautiful birds. Once I looked out and counted eight bright red ones and knew the paler females weren't far behind. Alas. I could only get two in this photo!
The scene stealers were the wild turkeys.
Many of them hung around under the deck where I'm sure they were devouring more than a little of the seed dropped down from the birds above.
But the more aggressive of the flock came right to the feeder!
At one point three turkeys were vying for the best seed!
When they were out in the field and in the distance, they looked liked rocks!
"The rocks are moving!"
These fellows seemed to hang around together, rather like they were having a good chat!
Of course there were chickadees.
And this fellow!
I'm glad he was pecking on the seeds and not wood on the house!
I'm not quite sure who this guy is! Any ideas? Is he the woodpecker above?
On a cold snowy day when you'd rather be inside than out, this is surely the place to be.
Thanks for indulging me in a little winter birdwatching. Now I'm waiting for the goldfinch to return to my feeder!
