This past Tuesday we had at least five blue jays at the feeder. When I started processing the photos, I discovered that at least one of them was banded.

White-breasted nuthatches have been regular visitors all year long, but until this week I haven’t been able to get a decent photograph of them.

The pine grosbeaks returned for a visit this afternoon. Three males (one shown here) and one female.

More evening grosbeaks today. Quite a lot more: they’re starting to turn up in goldfinch-like numbers.

Two American tree sparrows visited the feeder today: the first time we spotted and identified this apparently common species.

It’s snowing this morning, but that didn’t stop a small squadron of Common Redpolls from stopping by the feeder.

Goldfinches and redpolls should stick together,
Goldfinches and redpolls should all be pals.

The snow beneath the bird feeder was covered in seed, and this young blue jay was ON IT.

uuuh, look at this gorgeous thread of bird pictures above 😍
