Action at the bird feeders in these extreme subzero temperatures!

Late morning news... we had a cardinal today!

When I awoke at 5:30 a.m. it was -30˚ C. There were hungry cats on the prowl. The moon shone and reflected on the snow. It was a gorgeous morning. I went back to bed to get warm!
There is much going on at the feeder. I love watching them. In my imagination, I create stories!
Mourning Dove: "There's a fine looking Blue Jay!"

Another lands on the roof peering around.
The snow flies
"Hey there. Come here often?"

American Sparrow on the tree

"My turn for food!"

Then a golfinch took up the post,
with an incoming chickadee!

It looks at me, "Do I HAVE to share?"

"I'm outnumbered!"

"Back off, buster!"

Oh my goodness those birds are lucky to have you taking care of them in this weather. Great pictures here; the one of the sparrow on the snow covered tree could be a Christmas card!

They are nice birds in the bird house, like the Bluejay

Looks like the birds are loving your feeders!

Our feeders are mostly dominated by bluejays. We do also get sparrows, juncos and a hairy woodpecker. But mostly jays. No cardinals yet.

It was a very cold here too, overnight and snowy right now. Lovely pics or your sweet birdies.

In nasty weather there is lots of feeder activity. and also just before nasty weather comes in birds load up at the feeder.

That's so great to feed the birds. There may be food out there, but yours is readily available. - Margy
