The first blizzard of the year brought many of my birds back to the feeder. There is nothing I enjoy more in the winter than photography birds during a blizzard.

I have a number of birds at my feeders. They Grey Catbirds have been around and are raising their young in a pine tree near the feeders. They have been battling the Blue Jays most of the summer. Apparently the jays go after the eggs and young of other birds.

The goldfinches have been absent for much of the spring. I have no idea why but they have returned recently to feed on the thistle seeds.

For some reason I’ve been able to capture Blue Jays in a variety of strange poses over the years.

We recently had a nice snowy day. Nothing I love better on a snowy day than to photograph birds at my feeder.
