Baby, it's COLD out there!

We have some really cold weather (for Tennessee) setting in and the birds are frantic at our feeders. I have 4 feeders each with a different food. There is saffflower, nyger, wild bird mix and suet.

My visitors are titmouse, chickadees, juncos, gold finch, purple finch, house wren, sparrow, cardinal, mourning dove, nuthatch, red bellied woodpecker, downy woodpecker, and hairy woodpecker. I was surprised to discover the gold finch are just MEAN with each other. Everyone else pretty much shares the bounty but the gold finch fight as much as they eat.

The feeders are set up so they can be seen from the window where the computer sets. They are so much fun to watch. This same area is the one we will be turning into a bird and butterfly garden this spring.
