Birds at the Bird Kitchen on my Deck

"Please let me come inside and get warm"  Mr. BLUEBIRD says --while sitting at our door and looking inside.  Ahh--isn't he adorable?
This past Friday (my last blog post),  I posted about our pretty little snow on Tuesday, Jan 21, 2014.  Besides taking snow photos,  I also got some pictures of our sweet little Backyard Birds at the feeders on a COLD, SNOWY day!!!

Hope you enjoy seeing these little beauties!  Be sure to click on the photos for enlargements.

I had a hard time keeping the snow off of the feeders that day!

FINCHES at one of the four feeders near the sliding door;  These feeders have some protection from the weather --so the birds love them.

The birds are smart enough to go to the non-snowy side of the feeders.  This is a sweet little CHICKADEE.

Birds have to have water to live --and it's hard for them to find it in winter.  That's what is important about having a Heated Birdbath.  A BLUEBIRD enjoys a drink here.

There are two FINCHES in this photo.  Can you find them???? 

Gorgeous little Goldfinch

This is a BLUEBIRD in the Mealworm Feeder.  The dome is so neat to have since we can move it up and down as needed.  We are protecting their food in the plate --yet they can still get into it.

I couldn't get this CARDINAL to look my direction.  But --Cardinals are some of the prettiest birds to look at when it's snowing... That red color stands out in the snow (hence, my header)!!!

I keep a path on the deck cleaned off during a snowstorm so that I can fill and re-fill and re-fill the feeders.  This little BLUEBIRD showed off its beauty for me!
Hope you enjoyed seeing some of my Backyard Birds in the Snow!!!!  They are so much fun to watch --and I am thankful to be able to feed them...

Stay WARM wherever you are.  We have had frigid weather over and over the past 2-3 weeks... This is SO rare for this area of the country.  I haven't experienced temperatures this low for many, many years --if EVER.  I understand now why George is ready for SPRING... As much as I love snow,  I don't like this frigid weather... SO--it's okay if Mother Nature would bring Spring to us SOON....

Have a great day
