Backyard Feeding Station

Our backyard feeding station is a bustling scene this time of year.  The male cardinals are so bright against the dull colors of winter.  We have also been surprised by the sight of 4 bluebirds regularly stopping by.  Most of the bird traffic is of the more common winter birds - nuthatches, chickadees, juncos, cardinals, sparrows, wrens, flickers and woodpeckers.  Haven't taken any notice of blue jays this winter.  The squirrels are baffled by the squirrel baffles - duh!  But they keep on trying.  They do benefit from the seed that drops to the ground, as do the mourning doves and other ground feeders.
