Although I didn’t get to spend much time in my new backyard bird blind, I did get to spend a little and I enjoyed it. I was just a little too close to the feeder, but I love the detail in the shots.
First up is the Red Bellied Woodpecker. I’m pretty sure there is a nest nearby, as both parents are constantly feeding from the primary feeder.
Next is a Bluejay. I thought we just had two of them as I see them bathing every day in the bird stream, but today I saw a total of three.
Next is the Tufted Titmouse. We often hear these birds, but they don’t stay too long at the feeder. They grab a nut, then head off into the trees to eat.
Finally we have a male Northern Cardinal. These guys are present all year round. They also tend to be the most patient in using the feeder. Whereas some of the other birds tend to dominate the feeder, these guys will just wait until early evening to get their meal after everyone else has left.
