Nuthatch, braving the winds!
Female grosbeak, perched on one of the lilac branches that broke during October’s blizzard.
So many different birds love this one spot on a lilac branch, to peck open seeds.
Being so much bigger than most of our visiting birds, it’s the Blue Jays that get to claim it more often!
This male grosbeak looks downright angry! 😀
Happy New Year!
The day this photo was taken was very windy, sending the suet feeder swinging like crazy. That didn’t stop this determined little nuthatch!
We have seen very few grosbeaks this year, so it was a real treat when this female pine grosbeak took a break on one of the lilac branches.
Happy third day of Christmas!
I should be able to get back to regular posting, now. 🙂
We have seen very few grosbeaks this year. Last year, we were seeing large numbers of them, so it was lovely when this one little guy showed up, earlier this month. A cheerful splash of colour!
This photo was taken on December 1st.
I have never seen a robin this late in the year!
Poor bugger looks cold!
