Birds in the backyard
I am lucky to have a backyard frequented by all sorts of critters. In the Summer I am visited by opossums, raccoons, fox, rabbits, groundhogs and even bear. In the Winter usually only the squirrels, deer and turkey visit everyday. I enjoy the deer the most. Unfortunately, I think because of the heavy snow topped with a crust of ice the deer haven’t been around. No turkey today either. So today I spent some time watching, and photographing the birds. The Winter visitors to my feeders never miss a meal. This afternoon I watched house sparrows, juncos, tufted titmice, black capped chickadees and nuthatches at the feeder. I could watch them for hours. This is a link to some more photographs I took of the birds at my feeder https://flic.kr/s/aHsk8bngFb .
I don’t feed the birds because they need me; I feed the birds because I need them.”
