I have a bird feeder pretty close to my window so it's easy to see the visitors. Here is an American Goldfinch. He's much brighter in summer with his yellow plumage.
The chickadees are my favourite because they're so friendly.
This year I got a peanut feeder which keeps the blue jays busy and distracted.
The mourning doves roost in the spruce tree behind them in this picture. I put seed on the ground for them because they don't use the feeder.
Today I saw a pair of male cardinals. These guys are usually pretty shy and come to eat at dusk but today they were here mid-day.
This northern shrike was last year's visitor and grabbed a mouse right out of the snow as I was watching from the window. When it appears, all the other birds scram!
