I haven’t had a chance to get any posts up  the past few days so I thought I’d upload some photographs I  took at my backyard bird feeders this afternoon. Backyard feeders -18

I had to replace one the feeders, since it looks like the bear that lives in my woods is back and took one down yesterday. I just finished hanging it from a tree limb when  this black capped chickadee wasted no time helping himself to some thistle seeds. Backyard feeders -4

It was overcast so the photographs I took weren’t the best, but you can tell that the birds sure had an appetite . Backyard feeders -10

Most of the birds were still the year round residents. the chickadees, sparrows, titmice and nuthatches. Backyard feeders -14

The songbirds haven’t arrived yet but there were a few  newly arrived cowbirds at the feeders.Backyard feeders -9

I could spend hours watching my feathered friends at my feeders and I’m hoping to attract a number of different species this summer.  Backyard feeders -20

And, as I was taking these photographs my turkeys made their appearance, led by this tom .   He has been gobbling  and strutting almost everyday day now, to attract the attention of a hen and to keep the other jakes away. Backyard feeders -3

Well, time to check out the quarter moon and listen to the chorus of the spring peepers. I love the Spring in Northeastern Pennsylvania. Here is a link to some more photographs I took at the feeders. https://keepyoureyespeeled.net/photographs-page-2/nggallery/photographs-page-two-blog/back-yard-birds-april-13-2016Backyard feeders -4
