Birds Galore (part 2 – It’s a Feeding Frenzy)

"When the bird and the book disagree, always beiieve the bird." ~ James Audubon

It took me a few weeks to find, sort, and wash all of all my bird feeders. I finally have them all filled to the brim with fresh seed and WOW. I am so amazed at the flurry of activity. I’m still trying to find the names of some newcomers in my bird book?? I’ve never lived next to so many birds and it’s been fascinating to watch their antics…

    Love your bird pictures, and how you’ve caught them in flight. Our goldfinches are showing a bit more yellow, also! It’s like having your own little sunshine.

    what breathtaking photos, you captured such grace and life and movement. i had to laugh because “our birds” throw out the same seeds.

    I just get the feeders filled and they are empty again! I think I need to buy a bigger bag(s) of seed!
