Today we have some birds from our youngest contributor: Jamie Blilie, son of reader James Blilie. Jamie’s only 12 but is already taking very good photos.
Blue Jay (Cyanocitta cristata) with feathers puffed out:
Dark-eyed Junco (Junco hyemalis):
Black-Capped Chickadee (Poecile atricapillus) grabbing seed and taking off:
American Goldfinch (Spinus tristis) checking out our thistle seed feeder:
White-Breasted Nuthatch (Sitta carolinensis) enjoying our feeder:
Downy Woodpecker (Dryobates pubescens) going for our suet block. We’ve had a struggle keeping the suet and seeds away from raccoons this winter. We are trying to create a bird-friendly space in our back yard. It’s going pretty well.
