  Back to the Cold

After a few days of almost balmy weather here in Buffalo, the cold and the snow descended on us once again. It's hard to believe I was sitting on my deck early yesterday morning in just jeans and a sweater, enjoying the sounds of the birds as they awakened. Alas, winter is back!

The House Finches have been coming to the feeders very regularly now - up to a dozen of them at a time. I still marvel at their beauty. I was happy to see the Brown Creeper today and even/ managed a halfway decent photo of him.

Today also brought:

  • House Finch - 8
  • Brown Creeper - 1
  • American Goldfinch - 7
  • Tufted Titmouse - 6
  • Black-capped Chickadee - 7
  • American Tree Sparrow - 3
  • Northern Cardinal - 3
  • Junco - 6
  • Red-breasted Nuthatch - 1
  • White-breasted Nuthatch - 2
  • Red-bellied Woodpecker - 1
  • Downy Woodpecker - 1

This Red-bellied Woodpecker kept returning for the bark butter I just bought. It seems to be a hit!
