(I apologize in advance for the quality of the photos, they were taken from indoors and through a not so clean window)
It has been very cold here lately, the poor little birds were freezing yesterday, but are so incredibly cute when puffed up to stay warm.
Growing up in Eastern Canada, I still find magpies beautiful and eye-catching, even though they are considered a nuisance.
Here is one in flight, doesn't really show the markings but I still like the picture.
I have always been crazy about blue jays, when I was a child I considered them to bring good luck. I love when they visit.
I don't know very much about bird identification, and am not sure what this little fellow is. It made me think of a finch, but could be something else. Can anyone help out?
These little ones were all over the birch...
There was lots of activity at the birdfeeder...
I could sit and watch them all day.
One late addition, a flock of starlings arrived today, it was like a scene out of the movie 'The Birds'.
