Snow Birds 11/27/2014

 The Thanksgiving snow storm brought in a number of very cooperative "regulars" on Thursday morning to feed on suet, black oil sunflower seed, cracked corn and freeze dried meal worms. To date I have talled 97 species of birds from our yard during 2014, the most recent addition was a flock of 4 Common Mergansers that flew past just over the tree tops a week ago.

This Dark-eyed Junco must have recently lost its tail, perhaps to a cat?,
 but its new tail feathers are starting in. 

8-10 Eastern Bluebirds arrived for a feast of meal worms.

This female used a perching stick to while waiting her turn at
the worms.... 

...same for this male.

A handsome Mouring Dove, 1 of about 10 in the yard.

A placid Tufted Titmouse perched near the glass door allowing for a
close up.
