A winter weather advisory is in effect here in the south. For most folks, that means scurrying to the store to stock up on bread, milk and toilet paper (and wine and chocolate!)…but for me, an unapologetic birdnerd, that means asking hubby to hurry and help me set up a new bird feeding/photo station in the backyard – just in case we actually get some snow.
So…here is a picture taken with my cell phone of the station. (FYI – my husband is so good to me. He lugged a workbench out of the basement and cut up a dead limb to strap to the side and never complains about the odd yard decor!)
Although the lighting was kinda dismal, I took the camera outside to see if the birds liked their new station. Let’s just say it was an immediate hit. When I use Beowulf (my 100-400mm lens) the table itself disappears, and I was able to get some pretty nice shots.
So, here’s hoping for some wintry white tomorrow, and for many more birds to come to the backyard in the days ahead!

Wow. Great shots of a really good variety of birds. Your station worked out amazingly wll.
Oops, “amazingly well.” 🙂
I was pleased!
You did well if the bird response was any indication. I would love to see a Hermit Thrush someday. They don’t visit around here-central Kansas. At least, they don’t visit my yard!
They are such sweet, shy little birds.
Your shots are excellent, Kathy. There’s a possibility of snowing, tomorrow. 🙂
Lots of wind, but no white yet! Maybe later today!
To quote from the A-Team: I love it when a plan comes together!
Yes! And the fun part is that I can change the “accessories” to provide different perches.
Wow, you had this variety so quickly!
Lots of smaller birds so far. I am hoping the Blue Jays make their way here too!
Continued thanks for all your pics!
My absolute pleasure!
Your photos, as always, are absolutely stunning, Kathy! What a treat to see your ingenious backyard feeding/photo station!
Thanks! Hope your new year is off to a great start. The feeding/photo station is a fun work in progress!
It was a fun behind the scenes look at your yard!!
