For the birds

This guy is skittish – it took awhile to get this shot. I think the food helped. (Photo: Huffygirl)
Another snowy day in Michigan, with threats of a winter storm today. A good time to snuggle in at home, sit back and enjoy the birds.

This bird was at the beach near Lake Michigan. I thought it was a Killdeer but it does not match the picture in my bird book. Does anyone know who this is? (Photo: Huffygirl)

The clinging Downy Woodpecker can hang upside down to get the last little bit of suet left in the feeder. There's also a perch nearby so the perching birds can try the suet too. (Photo: Huffygirl)

  1. Lovely photos, and I love that little person in the top photo – is that a titmouse or something else?

    The squirrel looks like a baby – good time to start discouraging it.

    • Yes, it is a Tufted Titmouse in the top picture, which I think is a terrible name for such a pretty bird. I’m not sure if that squirrel was a baby or a smaller variety of squirrel, but he certainly had no qualms about making himself at home. I caught him many times on that feeder.
