At the Feeders and in the Trees - Week 34

The birds around my deck have really been busy this week. I've been filling the feeders often to make sure they have enough to eat. I had a surprise visit from an Orange-crowned warbler. He only visits my area during migration, so it is a delightful surprise to have him at my suet feeders. 

Other visitors this week included the Carolina Chickadee, 

The Purple Finch,

Male and female Purple Finch

The Northern Cardinal,

My favorite shot of the week was the American Cardinal sticking his leg out to hop to another branch.

Thanks for stopping by - Judy

  1. Hello Judy, beautiful captures of the Cardinal. You are lucky to have the Orange-crowned Warbler in your yard. Great photos and birds.. Thank you so much for linking up and sharing your post. Happy Saturday, enjoy your day and weekend.

  2. That Purple Finch is in full spring colors

  3. Judy,
    It snowed about 1 inch covering on the deck and the grass!
    The birds have been a flurry of activity at the feeder this morning.
    I love seeing the Cardinals and the Woodpecker!
    But, the little black Snowbirds that hop along on the deck close to the Patio doors, truly entertain me!
    I adore their bird tracks they leave behind!

    1. It has just started to snow here in Western Kentucky. My birds were in an eating frenzy today, too.

  4. Judy, I love seeing all your feathered friends when they visit. Their colors always amaze me but I don't think any can compare with the cardinals. The red just pops on a cold cloudy day. Hope you have a wonderful week...........

  5. Judy - bless you for keeping your feeders full for these little ones - I know it has been cold and snowy over there!
