It was cold at the lake this weekend and I spent a lot of time. cozy and warm, watching the birds at the feeders from inside. The feeders were very busy, with a colourful variety of visiting faces.

Indigo Buntings, Goldfinch (Wild Canaries), Black Capped Chickadees and Rose Breasted Grosbeaks. And off course the Blue Jays were abundant.

I was surprised by a visit from a Couple of Baltimore Orioles and a Hairy Woodpecker.

There were Sparrows showing their faces and, for the first time, I didn’t lump them all under the “sparrow” name. I took the time to look them up and found at least three I could identify.
