At the Feeders and in the Trees #48

Our temperature dropped to 22 degrees last night and this morning the temperature was 23. I made sure I filled the feeders off of our deck yesterday and boy did the birds appreciate it this morning after the freezing rain and sleet we received last night.

I am so fortunate to have the gorgeous Northern Cardinals in my area and love when they come to the feeders. What is there not to love about these stunning birds!

Other birds visited the feeders too. You can see Downy Woodpeckers, house finches, and a mockingbird in the pics below.

Love this collage with two cardinals in flight. 

I am fascinated trying to get pics with the birds spreading their wings and in flight. 

It takes a lot of pictures to capture a few good ones.

Many of our feathered friends are depending on us, so I hope you are able to keep your feeders filled! Take care and happy birding - Judy.

  1. Judy - I keep looking at your first photo, thinking it must be photo-shopped (and no, that is not an accusation)! I just can't get over all those cardinals and how "perfectly" they are spaced. And then I went on and oh my! You have the patience of Job to capture all those "in flight" pictures! Thank you so much for sharing these spectacles with the rest of us!

    I just bought a new feeder today since one of my old ones lost its plastic "stoppers", and the seed was literally pouring out each time I filled it! Looking forward to getting it out there tomorrow.

    1. You are right, it is not Photoshopped. I was lucky enough to have all those cardinals in my trees at once.

  2. Oh Judy your cardinals make me so happy. Your photos are stunning. Thank you for sharing.

  3. These pictures are wonderful! I love seeing the Cardinals.
