I love cardinals. Hairy woodpecker at the feeder today. With our 20" of snow we are getting new customers.

I never tire of seeing our year round residents at the feeders but it's also fun to see the winter visitors! The Warblers and Eastern Phoebe are new sightings for me this winter, I've never seen them here before! We have a few Hawk's that are year round residents (Cooper's Hawk, Red-shouldered Hawk and Red-tailed Hawk) and I've seen them often in backyard trees the past two years. I guess it's easy pickins for the raptors with so many songbirds around.

I never tire of seeing jays either...they're so cool! Sometimes I do get a bit tired of the cardinals just because there's sometimes too many of them coming too often to the feeders, often crowding other birds out.

Jays are nastier & eat eggs & nestlings as well.

I saw a new kind of woodpecker this morning...I think it was a female Red-bellied. And also a pipet, which I don't see often. Yesterday, I saw a Cedar Waxwing. Of course, as soon as I bring out the camera, only the usual suspects are around. So glad to see more birds.

The Golden-fronted Woodpecker was hanging out near the feeder last week on the cedar trees, bane of those allergic to it.

And new visitors to the feeder last week! Do these look like the Lesser Goldfinch? I was so impressed by the first two to show up...the black and yellow males are absolutely gorgeous! Not a good pic, but best I could get through the window.

This must be the female of that speices. And a cardinal in front...always present.
Thumb of 2011-02-02/LindaTX8/bce50e

I guess since these were from last week, it's okay to put them in the January thread...but someone should start a February one!

Linda: I Love Woodpeckers and that Golden-fronted is really pretty! That indeed does appear to be the Lesser Goldfinch visiting your feeders! I've never heard of that one but we rarely see the regular goldfinch down this way. I googled for the Lesser Goldfinch and found these pictures for comparison: http://www.google.com/images?hl=en&sugexp=ldymls&xhr=t&q=les...

I will start a new thread a bit later if no one else gets around to it.

Yes, they do look like those pics! I'm happy to have them here...more of a western kind, I think
