This week, I am out of state visiting my mother in Plainfield, NJ. These photos were taken from The Frog & PenguINN kitchen window in late February. The feeders were very busy.
There were the usual unwelcome visitors of grackles and cowbirds . . .
And, one which we don’t often see – until he has caught a meal , which unfortunately has happened over the last several weeks. This appears to be Sharp-shinned hawk, an agile flier that surprises its prey, typically songbirds.There’s been an assortment of male and female cardinals . . .
Also house finches and goldfinches . . .
A tufted titmouse sometimes visits, but never stays long enough for some good photos.Sharing is nice . . .
Just a little break from reading about Grenville’s fabulously fantastic fun-filled fen adventures this week.
