Last day of November

                                                                                                                                                                                 Photos by BarrytheBirder

The last day of November has brought snow that appears to be staying on the ground...and on the bird feeders.   This of course provokes a certain amount of nervous overcrowding and bickering about to whom the birdseed really belongs.   In the top photo, Goldfinches, Purple Finches and Juncos load up.   Out of the frame, but nearby, the more timid Chickadees, Tree Sparrows, House Finches and Cardinals wait their turn.   Of course, all these winter warriors will flee at the approach of the boisterous Blue Jays.   Then of course there are the squirrels - the bane of my existence.

I love your photography and am pleased to see that the ice has come off the feeder! Here in Winnipeg we have similar weather conditions but nowhere near the variety of birds. I did have a lone sparrow in my junco flock for a week or two - maybe the same crew? Our one fat grey squirrel has been nicknamed "Komodo" because of his size and swagger.
