Over the past two months I’ve been taking photos as I see more and more birds out our back window. My husband and I laugh at each other about how excited we get when we spot a new bird. When did we become birders? It has been interesting to see new types show up as it gets warmer. Well, theoretically it’s supposed to be warmer but here in Ohio it’s still freezing and we’re even supposed to get 5 more inches of snow tonight! With the cold weather and the snow, the birds flock to the feeders since they need so much food to stay alive.
I’ll do a future post identifying the various types we’ve seen but I wanted to share some photos from when we get huge gatherings at the feeders. That’s my favorite – when you look out and see 10-15 birds just hangin’ out. All-you-can- eat buffets draw a crowd in the bird world too!
The photos aren’t always the best quality since I’m taking them with a long lens and through my living room window (which only gets washed outside when it rains). Even so, it’s great to have a record of the little visitors.
Let’s see how many birds you can spot….
