The Birdies are back

Eric was kind enough to refill the Birdfeeder for me the other day, and we got a little dusting of snow.  And the next day, we had visitors.

This was an unusual one for me.  
I hadn't seen this one before.  
But I looked it up on, and come to find out, it's a Tufted Titmouse. 
Now that's just Fun to say. 

Tufted Titmouse. 

The Juncos go for the scraps.  

A House Sparrow and a Goldfinch at the buffet.  

The Juncos get scared off pretty easily, but they stay close. 

Mr. and Mrs. American Goldfinch. 

Ah the nutty Nuthatch.

And the Titmouse is back. 

The Nuthatch looks quite large next to the Goldfinch.  
But he likes to grab a snack, and then zip elsewhere.  

Eric took this.  During naptime, while he was working from home, he spotted this squirrel who figured out how to get into the Squirrel-proof feeder.  My camera was still out.  So he snapped this pic, and then set Princess loose on him. :) 

Last but not least, one more Tufted Titmouse for the road.  
Yes, I'm 12. 
Tufted Titmouse.
