Winter Finches have arrived!

Winter Finches have taken over! They are all over the feeders as I start another year of Project Feederwatch backyard bird counts.

Seen in my very popular Eastern Red Cedar tree. There are usually bunches of birds hidden in the inner branches, invisible to the human eye.

Finch on the bottles 2
Empty Pepsi bottles are strung along the feeder line, effectively eliminating squirrels from any of those feeders. They don't even try any more!

A lone goldfinch to round out the bunch. There was also a single purple finch, but he wouldn't sit still for a photo.
