Busy day here feeding birds.... about seven thrush, well over a dozen juncos, a few chickadees, and a sparrow. A guest appearance by a Jay who did not stay. They are not good at sharing. But seem to all manage to get in. They got here at dawn and are still here now at dusk! Snowing hard. I've been cleaning the snow out of the seed pans but I can't keep up. (Finally made a little shelter but could not photograph it due to snow on the window of my kitchen!)
This guy has a little bit of down slipping away. Was not snowing yet this morning when he was posing.
They seem to spend as much time posturing as eating. The Varied Thrush are about 7 times bigger than the juncos. But the little guys hold their own.
sometimes you just have to wait. Amazing how such a long bird can pull itself into a ball.
Seven varied thrush and a junco (in the red feeder) - more snow on the way. I'll be busy. I have a variety of feeders. A thrush tried to sit on the stick of the red feeder but he was way too big!
