Walk in Peace.
I keep my birdfeed in a large plastic trash can with lid. The squirrels have chewed on the lid but they haven't got in ......yet.

I used to keep a large bag of seed in a galvanized can with lid and brick on top. They eventually figured out what was in there. I don't think they got the btrick off but if I left it off I think they lifted the lid and got in.

All the usual suspects in birds today- wren, chickadee, cardinal, titmouse, robin (not in the seed but in the tree) and goldfinch.

I keep my seed in a metal can that has a locking sort of lid, So far so good an them not getting to that. I just cant keep the #$%&!! off the feeder Glare

I haven't seen any titmice yet and very few goldfinch Confused even though I have out thistle. The wren was here today and I was lucky to get a decent shot

It happens in a flash, but the memory of it last forever. It can not be borrowed or stolen, and it is of no earthly good until it is given away. So if in your hurry you meet someone who is too weary to smile, leave him one of yours, for no one needs a smile quite as much as he who has none to give...

I am sorry I have been MIA from this thread for so long...
But Spring is almost here, and I am ready!

I do have a few to share, taken from my balcony throughout the winter.
I didn't really get out much.

This is a Ruby-crowned Kinglet... This one lone little guy hung around nearly all winter. So tiny and cute!

Welcome back (home!) Karen! Love all the pictures. Was that Cardinal in the snow the one on March 5? So jealous - we got not a flake up in the DC Metro area. Well... we did have some flakes, but as our Capital Weather Gang says, they were merely "conversational" snow. Hilarious!

Yes Barb, it was the one from March 5th...
And that was our "big" snowfall for the winter!
We got about an inch and a half,
And it all melted about an hour after it stopped.
That was fine with me!

Always a pleasure to see your photos Karen I tip my hat to you.

Oh so nice!
My birds have started eating more from the feeder this month than at all earlier this winter. Kinda glad to save a few $$, not having to refill before now.

At first glance I thought loon, hmmm bill's wrong. Blackheaded duck, hmmmm, plumage isn't right. Got home and looked till I found this: Common Merganser Thumb of 2012-03-12/eric4home/d3f7ba

This is the best I could do, The light was going fast, and handheld. I don't recall ever seeing these, but apparently they are common??

Spring has sprung...
and it's that time of the year again!
The shad are making their annual spawning run!
And the birds are hungry!

Here are a few from Monday night... as the GBHs were starting to gather for the upcoming feast.
