A few of my feathery friends

I love having different birds at my feeder. I have a feeding station out front where I basically just spread seed on the ground and in a bird bath, plus two hanging feeders on the deck. Yesterday to my great regret as I looked out at the front one I saw the large stray cat (not my kitten; a grown cat) rush towards the birds and it caught one. NOOOOOOOOO!!!!!! I rushed outside and shooed it away. Alas, it still had the bird in its mouth. Listen guys, this is supposed to be a bird feeding station, not a bird eating station. Sigh. Poor birdy. I felt so badly. I felt as if I had contributed to its demise.

Here are my “back yard” birds.

We have a pair of Downy Woodpeckers that come to the suet I have out. Here is Mrs. Downy.

The goldfinches are wearing their somewhat drab winter coats.

We have tons of Tufted Titmice around. I love their little top knots. They are sweet birds. Looking very penguin-ish is a nuthatch in the background.

Here’s the White-Breasted Nuthatch. He looks like he’s wearing a toupee to me.
