Feeder Frenzy

I understand it is warmer at home now (I am currently in Arkansas visiting family) but a week and a half ago we had several inches of snow and some subzero cold. It drove a lot of visitors to the feeders.

Like these American Tree Sparrows. I am always intrigued by their two-toned bill.

And this American Goldfinch. I always find it amazing that this is the same bright yellow bird we see in the spring.

This Dark-eyed Junco (Pink-sided). We most commonly get this and the Slate-colored race.

This Black-capped Chickadee has grabbed a sunflower seed and is launching back into the pine tree to chow down.

And finally this Spotted Towhee, one of four who are common visitors.

I'm in the Springs. We had a robin perched on a parking lot light at work yesterday. I thought they were gone for the winter.
