Feeding birds in winter is a wonderful experience. There is always so much dynamic action and interaction in these tiny creatures.
I try and buy a premium mix with lots of different food types so as to encourage the greatest variety of birds.

Sometimes the feeder gets quite crowded and there are some smalll minor squabbles.


There are always birds coming and going and they seem to appear in groups, first a flock of Chickadees and then Finches.

The Red Breasted Nuthatch, my favorite bird. They have such big personalities for such small birds!


It's amazing to see how birds operate in the air dropping down to fly off!
