Still in winter’s grip

We have had a bit of a reprieve from the snow today, but not the cold…

January 19, 2012 

There is just no way we could get any further than here…

another look

there is no open water so there isn’t going to be anything in the way of birds anyway…


pointed the camera in the direction of where we normally walk…and that was that!  So thought I’d put in a few pictures of some of the birds frequenting my feeders right now.  I actually took these a few days ago before it got quite as cold as it is now…

Dark-eyed Junco

Dark-eyed Junco – have seen a slate variety as well

Varied Thrush

Fluffed up Varied Thrush – this one a female – probably have at least a dozen…

Spotted Towhee

Spotted Towhee – this one a male

Female Spotted Towhee

here a female…must be a dozen or so of them as well…

Song Sparrow

Song Sparrow in about the same numbers.  Have also had at least 3 Fox Sparrow, including one that was very ‘reddish’ rather than our dark ‘Sooty’ variety.  They are spooky though and I haven’t managed a picture.

Pine Sisken

Pine Sisken.   Also have, Purple Finch (6 or 8), Starlings, Red-wing Blackbirds, a Northern Flicker and, of course, Steller’s Jay
