Today's snow storm bird and critter pix

Last edited Mon Dec 28, 2015, 11:09 PM - Edit history (2)


The Christmas Eve storm pix are here: http://www.democraticunderground.com/10027472788


This storm wasn't as bad as the one on Christmas Eve. So we could put food on the ground as well as in the feeders. The third photo down is a Red-bellied Woodpecker with bread in HER beak: https://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/Red-bellied_Woodpecker/id

In the second photo down you can clearly see the heater that keeps the bird bath heated so it doesn't freeze.

12. Tufted Titmouse`


https://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/Tufted_Titmouse/id




A little gray bird with an echoing voice, the Tufted Titmouse is common in eastern deciduous forests and a frequent visitor to feeders. The large black eyes, small, round bill, and brushy crest gives these birds a quiet but eager expression that matches the way they flit through canopies, hang from twig-ends, and drop in to bird feeders. When a titmouse finds a large seed, you’ll see it carry the prize to a perch and crack it with sharp whacks of its stout bill.

18. From late 2014 squirrel pix


The sad news. The neighbor cut down his tree this past June that the squirrel is using for an escape route. We lost a lot of shade.


Broad daylight we just caught a thief-vandal on our deck with photos: http://www.democraticunderground.com/10025687152
