Christmas and Snow Birds

As you know from reading Grenville’s posts today, there’s a LOT of snow on the VA eastern shore and other places down south.

The Frog & PenguINN feeders had lots of visitors the past 2 days, starting with Christmas morning when there images were taken with my Christmas gift.
Cardinals are always a colorful sight . . ..

So is the blue jay, who prefers to dine solo . . .

Finches and juncos are fun to watch and “share”. . .

The above shots were taken yesterday, Christmas day.
These shots were taken 24 hours later from the same location – the kitchen window.

And visits by these unwelcome visitors once again . . .

Where’s that hawk when he’s really needed?

Hi Beatrice...I really like the collages very pretty!! Very nice post....Grenville and his "panic" post has got me scared half out of my wits!!

Beautiful collages! You have such a colorful variety of birds at your feeders. Mine have been very quiet as the birds are hunkered down with the food they stashed earlier. Our temps have been mostly in the minus 20s and 30s the past week.

Hi Grammie G, THANKS!

Thanks too Elaine and Mona. These collages are a great way to show so many birds. Mona, if you saw the feeders today you would have seen hordes of those unwelcome visitors. Earlier this morning, a cardinal, some finches and juncos visited. But once we cleared the snow and filled the feeders, the UVs were back and stayed all day until they emptied the 2 flat feeders. Hope that once this snow goes away, then they will too!
