We took many pictures of birds this winter on Prince Edward Island and I thought I would share a few with you today.
We usually put out our Christmas tree on the deck when we’re done with it inside so that the birds can enjoy it for a couple of months. They really love it. Some use it for protection and others just visit the feeders that we hang in it or very close to it. Some of the small birds, like the dark-eyed junco, frequently collect the seeds that fall to the deck when the bigger birds are at the feeders.
Today we saw a bird that we’ve never seen before. Thanks to the All About Birds website, we identified it as a female common redpoll.
This morning my dad took this picture of a morning dove.
We’ve been seeing a lot of European starlings this winter. They seem to love our suet.
As always we get a lot of cute chickadees. This one liked our window feeder.
Downy woodpeckers visit our feeders from time to time.
We were lucky to get a picture of this one sitting on the fence.
Of course it would be strange if we didn’t see any blue jays in PEI. This one was eating the seeds from the bell feeder slightly hidden inside the Christmas tree.
We saw a lot of goldfinches in January. Here are a few that liked to hang out in our front yard.
We see a lot of dark-eyed juncos on the deck. These cuties like to hang out close to the Christmas tree.
