I thought I'd get away from sharing Christmas decor this week and feature some of the feathered friends that visit the backyard feeders and bird bath during winter. We place a heater in the metal birdbath which keeps the water available for drinking and bathing and this is also a requirement when one certifies their property as a wildlife habitat.
A male cardinal (males and females frequent the backyard year round) and a male downy woodpecker.
Mourning doves captured during the blue hour.
A bluejay drinking water and cedar waxwings eating snow from the roof of the garden shed.
The bird bath sees lots of activity from a flicker, female cardinal, chickadee, robin, cedar waxwing, goldfinch and grackles. The half brick in the middle of the water keeps the birds from getting their feet caught in the heater.
