Winter Weather Warning

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.

House Finch
Tufted Titmouse
Hermit Thrush
Northern Mockingbird
Eastern Bluebird (female)
Eastern Bluebird (male)
White-breasted Nuthatch
Carolina Wren
Pine Warbler

So, here’s hoping for some wintry white tomorrow, and for many more birds to come to the backyard in the days ahead!

  1. 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!

  2. Your shots are excellent, Kathy. There’s a possibility of snowing, tomorrow. 🙂
