Lots Of Food On A Cold Day

The vet's centre at Sunnybrook is in a well treed area and they have a lot of bird feeders out and it is amazing to see the variety of birds they attract in the middle of the city. This one feeder was taken over by these sweet Ruby-Crowned Kinglets ( I think).  They may be Goldfinches in winter coats. Any birders out there may correct me on that ID!

Loved seeing the little Goldfinches. Buddy has put out lots of food and the socks so we are hoping. The woodies are already back. Now all we need is a good snow and I will be able to get some good pictures. The yellow on the feeder really pops against the stark leafless tree. Have a nice weekend.

Look like Goldfinch to me too. They change their colour so much over the year.

I can't correct you 'cuz I don't know a lot of birds. People have said I was "for" the birds but I'm not sure what they meant...I like these feeders. Hope they are squirrel proof!

Really lovely seeing these birds with their ways and flamboyance.

Love these little beauties Pat.. I find it easy to capture the bigger galahs, correllos and cockatoos but the smaller birds are so fast and tricky.

EG CameraGirl said...

Yep, goldfinches get pretty dark during the winter months...and they love sunflower seeds.

Jack said...

They are called "cute little birds."

(If they aren't herons or pelicans, I can't identify them.)

Whatever they are, they look happy!
