Our Feathered Friends

by Megan

We have some feeders outside (we’ll put more out this summer) and really enjoy watching the birdies come and eat. Eli can identify the Cardinal and squirrels. :-) We are not sure what the small black birds with white chest are called. Here are some of the pictures we’ve managed to capture this winter season.

The female Cardinal keeping watch.

The male Cardinal eating some yummy bird seed.

If you look way in the back, in the trees you can see a red spot. That’s the male Cardinal sitting in the trees, wondering when we are going to fill the empty feeder for him. :-)

Some woodpeckers trying to peck through the plastic portion of the feeder. They eventually figured out where the opening for the bird seed was and started feeding from there.
