Well, hello

Eastern Bluebirds: these guys never come to the feeders. I guess the recent cold has made their usual food hard to find. The four of them chowed down for quite a while. Hope they come back.






The water they come to often. Here with a Mourning Dove and a female Northern Cardinal


A repurposed jelly/fruit feeder. The only birds who ever came for the jelly were migrating Rose-breasted Grosbeaks; the rest of the summer I hang a hummingbird feeder here.



I love how she's holding on with one toetip

Thanks, I've never seen a bluebird (excerpt in photos) -- you're so lucky! The Polar Vortex must've been hard on birds and other outdoor creatures. Now it's supposed to reach near 60F today and tomorrow (so maybe Punxsutawney Phil WAS right!).

We see lots of crows but not many other birds. I have seen bluebirds around here, but not very often at all. We might get more if we put out feeders, but with five cats, including one true killer, that's not going to happen.
