  3. Beautiful captures Karen. I haven't put my sunflower feeders up yet as there is still lots of bugs around for the winter birds to eat. I have the nyjer feeder up but there are no finches around lately. I wonder if they've gone south?

  12. Okay...I have to ask...what is the orange/red food in the feeder [the first image]? Maybe I should look for this kind of food...

    I've had my first chickadee this year - not sure why, but it is so danged cute.

    It eats from a thistle seed bag close to the outside of my kitchen window and I watch it a lot.
