In My Back Yard

We have a huge flock of redpolls visiting our yard right now, what a sweet little bird they are.
We had freezing rain last week which left icicles on the bird feeder and branches covered in ice.  That didn't stop one of the resident bunnies from munching on birdseed on the ground and the redpolls have been fighting over the niger feeder; emptying it every couple of days.
I'm linking with Mosaic Monday at Little Red House.

  1. I love the redpolls and am surprised they are still coming around here. Your icy photos are pretty but I'm glad that's overwith for you now. Have a great week Judith! Pam

  2. The Redpolls look like the House Finches that have built a nest at the top of one of my columns on the front porch. They make such pretty chirping sounds. The sounds of spring. Have a lovely week Judith.

  6. The bird feeder with the icicles tells it all! Spring is late here as well. No freeze only cool temperatures! A very unique collage!!

  7. The birdies have found your house and for that, I'm glad.

    We've had quite a few flocking to our yard, at last, too.

    The squirrels try to get to the seed but cannot. One even resorted to shaking the pole the bird feeders are on, the little rapscallion.

    Well, hope you have a nice, bird-filled week ahead. Susan

  11. I don't think I've ever seen a repoll but they look a little like the purple finches we have here. We have hundreds of goldfinches right now...they refuse to fly North just yet! Hope it warms up at your house soon!

  12. We are like minded this week with the ice on all the branches. We had redpolls through the winter but I see the housefunches are back. Valerie

  14. Hi Judith,
    What wonderful springtime pics from your yard. I love this time of year and the wonder of nature. We have a cardinal in my rose arch and she just hatched 3 little babies yesterday. They are darling and we are enjoying watching her care for the little ones. So sweet.

    Your little repolls are darling.

    Wishing you a great week.Hugs, CM

  16. What sweet birds those redpolls are. So glad you were able to capture one with your camera.
    Your weather has really been odd. It's certainly made the news here. I hope this week is warmer and more springlike.

  20. What a sweet photo, Judith! We have a lot of finches here that are red in color. I'm not sure if they're house finches or purple finches, but they sure are pretty.

  21. Yes, we received that very same storm with ice and sleet everywhere! *sigh*
    hugs,

  23. That's a lovely little finch. We don't have those out West. Actually, every time I'm out East I look for cardinals but rarely see them. Goodness Judith you're having an adventure with your weather. I do hope the sun comes out for you very soon now. Warm hugs!

  24. The wildlife must love you for filling the feeders in snow, sleet and ice. I hope winter lifts from your part of the country soon. Bring on the sun!

  25. Your mosaic looks like a sweet little hexagon quilt. Uniquely cool! I'll be back to investigate the note cards a bit later. ;>

  27. That is a cute little bird. I think I am more than ready for the temperatures to warm up a bit.

  28. Wow freezing rain...ugh, and some are still getting snow storms...double ugh. Spring has arrived in KY, and we are happy, though that also means tornado weather through June... Sweet little songbird~
