Snow, Part 3

AYLA:  Today we have birdie pictures ta show.  Who doesnt like ta see birdies?

First, there were birdie footprints the morning the snow stopped...
 Im not sure why they hop around on the snow when there is nothin fer them ta eat!
Then yesserday, TBT took pictures of the birdies themselfs.  The goldfinchs sure love the thistle seed feeder.  There are 6 perches an usually a dozen or more waitin fer a turn.
The regular bird feeder has lots of birdies on the ground below.  Thats cuz the mockingbird shoves lots of seeds off the tray above them.
The cardinals prefer the actual feeder an they chase the mockingbird away.  
But there are a dozen male cardinals (probly as many females but they are harder to see to count) an the feeder only has room fer 2 at a time.  So some have ta wait in the bushes an trees.
An there is a Blue Jay that visits.  Hes big so the cardinals all leave him alone.  Only the Woody Woodpecker can chase him away.  An NOBIRDY bothers the Woodpecker!
Here is a Cardinal waitin his turn.
An THIS one is tellin the others they have to wait!
 An here is the next in line flyin up to take over the tray.

Your Bird TV is certainly action packed. Our woodpeckers look a lot different to yours.

Good bird TV, we only see 2 cardinals at a time, one male and one female.

But we get lots of finches.

Oh boy, love to see cardinals! Well, all of them are pretty! And crunchable!
We used to have a female cardinal who sat at looked in our window all the time, it took us a while to realize she was a cardinal because the females are so drab, but this one had a beautiful mustard colored face. (They probably all have that face, but this one was 'ours'! So of course she was prettiest!)

OH! What a perfect channel. I will have to do some dialing and see if I have that one too! You must have premium channels.

Mommy said her old partment building had balconies (she didn't, being on the first floor), and many balconies had feeders, so there was excellent bird tv. I think that would have been lovely. *sigh*
We're too far up and there's no balconies here.
Enjoy for us, okay?
