We recently had our first winter snow storm. I spent the day photographing birds at my feeders.

The Song Sparrows have returned. They arrived just in time for a nice big snow storm.

I have a large number of Purple Finches at my feeder. I occasionally have a few around but the numbers are much higher than normal. On the other hand I usually have a large number of American Finches around but only have a few of them.

The female was perched first but when the male came he didn’t like the company.

I don’t always have Purple Finches at my feeders during the winter but this year I have a few that have been showing up regularly the past several weeks.

I had a number of infrequent visitors to by bird feeders this past week and luckily I was able to capture them.

A few weeks ago we had an ice storm. Since I couldn’t do much outside I spent the morning watching the birds at my feeding station. They were having a hard time hanging on to the branches because of the ice and the strong winds. I was trying to figure out how the Northern Cardinal could fly with so much ice on its tail feathers but it didn’t seem to have a problem.
