Winter birds – take care large and small

Our feeders have been mad with activity, what with -20 C. temperatures, there have been feeding frenzies. 
We delivered a loon to a bird centre in Napanee last week. heaven knows what happened to it, frozen in the cold, stuck in a field, with a hurt wing.
The Goldfinch lose their yellow in winter, but s/he had me fooled with the beige!

Wonderful collection of birds. It is fun to watch them at the feeders during or after a snow storm. They go into a feeding frenzy. I love the Redpoll and I am dying to see one myself. Happy Sunday!
