Thank you for your shares!

The visibility around my feeders was grim from the fierce rain/snow/sleet storm here early yesterday morning that I couldn't really identify many beyond the few normal regulars. There were at least over 50 birds in and out in the brief flurry. From the different colors and sizes I was able to detect only the locals, but I know there were many newcomers in the mix.

After those incoming left, I headed to the marsh camera hunting looking for hawks, eagles and shorebirds. Not much going on over there in the wild weather, except for an assortment of sparrow species, horned larks, robins, juncos and huge numbers of seagulls. My best shots of the day were of a Killdeer and a pair Northern Pintails landing in a corn stubble field.

I have 4 feeders out for goldfinches, with niger seed. On Saturday I counted 21 goldfinches and one house finch feeding at the same time. They’ll empty the 4 tubes of seed every 3 days. Nothing else works these feeders but finches.

Nice pictures Johnathan. Bearded lady came by for a visit this morning. We feed the birds .Not a one complains! As far as dependency on feeders, seems to me when natural food becomes available they prefer that over supplementary feed .
