Not Quite Wordless Wednesday

Recently we have had another round of cold weather. Last Thursday the daytime temperature dropped from 40 into the low 20’s with a few snow flurries. By Friday morning it was 9 degrees with a wind chill of zero so I re-loaded the bird feeders.

It’s always good to see cardinals in the neighborhood. There are at least three or four pairs that come to the feeders.

They prefer to feed when things are quiet. If the feeders are filled with other birds, the cardinals will either stay on the fence or go to the ground and feed on what the others kick out of the feeders.

Friday morning this youngster showed up on the back fence. Needless to say, there was not another bird in sight.

He hung out for 10-15 minutes before deciding that there was nothing of interest to him. This was the second appearance of a hawk on my back fence in a week and the third time this winter. I love birds of prey, but I’m praying he doesn’t consider my feeders as his personal hunting area. Still, I would watch hawks for hours, so he is welcome to return any time. Have a blessed day.

  1. We feed all the birds too and we love watching them. They make us smile. We have a sparrow hawk that makes an appearance now and then. I hope the same thing you do.
