Spring at the Birdfeeder

After enjoying a relatively healthy winter, spring gets here & I get a cold! Decided to stay home from work today to give me one more day to find some energy. My afternoon was devoted to the bird feeder & camera. I have never watched birds as closely as I have through out the winter & now as spring arrives. What a treat these beautiful creatures are!

The cardinal is as lovely with a green background as he was in the snow.

This change amazes me. The male gold finch brightens up in the spring. They are so very beautiful.

A crowd gathers under the feeder. The clean up crew?

This is another finch. He spent the cold months brown & black with just a bit of red showing, but look at him now. What a change!
