I have been able to feed the birds now that we only have indoor cats. And so I have been slowly learning about what birds we have. But I need help now that they all have their winter plumage. I know these aren’t the best photos, as they are through a screen, but can you tell me:
Are these goldfinches, pine siskins, purple finches, or something else entirely? They look like the cross bills in my bird book, except that I can’t see if they have crossed bills. Sort of important, I know.
I did not get a picture, but did see a pair of little woodpeckers – downy, I believe, at the suet the other day. They are so cute! Haven’t seen their big brothers pileated in a while, I wonder if they are still around?
huge flocks of mourning doves and chickadees also rule the yard. While I miss Frankie and Tigger, I am glad that Allie and Zumba are indoors girls so we can feed the birds and see them up close!
