The Rose-breasted Grosbeaks are eating most of my sunflower seeds.

Helping the Grosbeaks are the American Goldfinches. They are also eating most of the thistle seeds.

At the start of summer the Baltimore Orioles were absent from the feeders while they raised their young. They have now returned with their young.

Red-bellied Woodpeckers have been at the feeders all summer eating   suet, sunflower seeds and grape jelly.Downy woodpeckers have also been at the feeders.

The Grey Catbirds have a nest near the feeders and spend a lot of time eating grape jelly.

Mourning Doves spend a lot of time under the feeders cleaning up the mess.

Northern Cardinals are around year around.

A few more bird photos from Canadian Hill Farm. Unfortunately a male Red-bellied Woodpecker hit the window last week and was killed. The female is still coming to the feeders.

More bird photos from Canadian Hill Farm. Since we really haven’t had much of a winter I’ve spend more time than usual photographing birds. I managed to capture this photo late in the day when the sun was shining on some pine trees in the background.

I managed to capture this photo just as a Dark-eyed Junco cleared the snow off of her back.

I have a few Red-bellied Woodpeckers that show up at my feeders year around. Their favorite food seems to be peanut butter suet.

We had a nice snowstorm last week and I spend part of the day photographing the birds at my feeder. It was difficult early in the morning because of the low light levels but it lightened up later in the day while continuing to snow.

Most of the birds are now off raising their young. The Baltimore and Orchard Orioles were at the feeders in large numbers but they have tailed off. Hopefully they are nesting in the area and will return to the feeders with their young.

The Chipping Sparrows are also nesting in the same evergreen trees. It might get crowded.

The Woodpeckers are some of the most frequent visitors to my feeding stations. Hopefully they will be bringing their young to the feeders in the near future.

More bird photos can be found on my website.

My main interest is photographing birds while it’s snowing out but I do shoot at other times. These are a few birds seen at my feeders in the last few weeks.

A few days ago we had, what was supposed to be, a brief morning snow squall. I had an appointment in town in the morning and was disappointed that I would miss the opportunity to photograph birds. As it turned out the snow squall turned into an all day event giving me an opportunity to get some great winter bird shots.
