The temperature took a bit of a dip here in the Atlanta area over the weekend, which prompted quite a crowd to show up at the backyard buffet.
The most sought after (and sometimes fought after!) burreakfast item was definitely the Bark Butter – a suet type spread that is high in protein. The birds really do love this stuff.
Fresh water was also a draw. As soon as I dumped out the ice in the dish and added not-yet-frozen water, the birds started dropping in for a drink.
And of course, there were birds like this handsome Pine Warbler who opted for the Bark Butter/Beverage combo.
It’s funny, although I’m usually a cold weather wimp, it’s actually my favorite time to be out with camera in hand. Call me strange (my family does!) but there’s something invigorating about snapping pictures when you can’t feel your nose or your toes!

Lovely bird friends!
Great pictures, Kathy. Love the pine warbler. He doesn’t visit my neighborhood. 😞
The freezing cold weather has given me one very unhappy cat! 😾 He expects me to play with him since he can’t go outside and chase the birds… Your photos are wonderful, Kathy although I don’t know how you stand out in the cold!! Brrr!! ☃️❄️✨🐦
Wow! So many beautiful friends, those who know the are handsome and those who don’t 😊
Wonderful shots! Most of these birds have migrated to the south of us. I enjoy catching up with them here.
WOW WOW WOW what a collection of birds! thank you for sharing
Looks like everyone is enjoying their breakfast 😀
Thanks for the pictures! It was cold in Macon too! Great reminder to pick up more feed. Must try the bark butter!
