This Cardinal has a funny thing sticking out of his right side wing, but it doesn't seem to hinder him.
I wish it would start singing soon!
A junco taking a break in the sun.
Some I see most every day, like the Titmouses and the White breasted Nuthatches. And by the way, is it Titmouses or Titmice? I'm not sure...
A really hungry goldfinch reaching for sunflower hearts.
Sometimes it pays off to spend (a lot of) time on the Internet. I found a fun birdwatching blog and when this unusual little bird showed up and I couldn't find it in my book, I wrote to the Birdchick blogger and asked if she could help me. It turned out to be a female White winged Crossbill, normally not straying as far south as Massachusetts.
The hawk comes and makes the sparrows nervous. I'm pretty sure this is Cooper's hawk but I might be wrong.
I have a couple of pairs of Downy woodpeckers.
Redbellied guy comes often too, but so hard to catch on a picture! His mate is even more skittish.
He's feisty and makes the Downies wait for their turn.
A sunning house sparrow.
This one only stayed for a day, but at least I could take pictures: common redpoll.
That's probably enough pictures for today. But I like my Chickadees too, and the Mourning Doves and the House finches. I have seen the occasional Tree sparrow, and once a Hairy Woodpecker. The other day Redwinged Blackbirds came by, and I also saw the Sharpshinned Hawk by my neighbor's feeder.
