Yes they are...You need to come here and talk to my birds about posing.. It was so cold and snow was blowing that I felt so sorry for them. But as long as they have the food and water, they will be OK...Michelle

You have the best window views in the world! My hope is to get a good sighting and photo of either one of your regulars this season ...we never see these two in Oregon, and only occasionally here in Florida.
