With the wind knocking over the bird feeder so often, the hanging feeders were getting pretty damaged. So the last time it happened, I decided it was a good time to get a suet feeder for the winter.
I think it’s going over rather well, with the chickadees!
Of course, what he’s actually doing is eating a seed, but I can pretend!
All summer, the blue jays were making it hard for me to get their photos. It seemed they could tell when I was trying to focus on them and would fly off! They don’t do that so much, now that things are getting colder. 🙂
I’ll be catching up on some photos of our feeding station from late October, over the next few days. Starting with this cheeky fellow!
No raging blizzard was going to keep this nutty nuthatch from a snack!
While the blizzard was howling, on Thanksgiving day weekend, we were surprised by how many birds were braving the conditions to feed.
It was also the first time we’ve seen dark eyes juncos since spring – and they went away with the storm!
You can tell it’s starting to get chilly, when the chickadees start to puff out their feathers more!

We got a brief visit from an adult male Common Grackle.
Their faces look so angry! 😀
