Christmas Cheer

We had a dusting of snow, cold penetrating wind and a cloudy day on Christmas Eve. We also were graced with the return of Goldfinches at the feeders. It is always grand to see them and brightens every winter. The Goldfinches were late returning to our area this year. Thus, the appearance on that day was a gift that everyone could enjoy.

Other hungry birds visiting the yard and feeders were an Orange Crowned Warbler, Carolina Chickadees, Tufted Titmice, Northern Cardinals, Downy and Red Bellied Woodpeckers, House Finches, and White Wing Doves. The Red Bellied perched on the peanut feeder in such a pose that everyone could see its red belly.
