I am amazed at how well camouflaged my backyard birds are. These images are just a little too wide for my page. So, if you will click on them then WordPress will show you the whole picture.
Try to see if you can count how many birds there actually are in these pictures. I promise you there are a bunch you can not see. Notice that it has snowed since this morning.
This is what was going on while we were sitting at our dining room table eating our soup. Check out the birds in this shot. Please note the squirrel in the middle of the photo. His tail had just flicked the little white crowned sparrow who is jumping into the air behind him. There is a cardinal lady right in front of that.
This is a view of the other feeding station, taken from my kitchen window. The camera is confused by the screen. Check out the redwinged black birds and the cardinal ladies in the forsythia bush in the background. That bush is behind the privacy fence and stands on a mound next to my pond. At the foot of that forsythia lies a small waterfall and little shallow stream that runs back into the pond a few feet away. The birds are queueing up back there for a drink and bathe.
