I am trying out a new location for the blog. If you have a preference, please leave a comment.

Here is a dark eyed junco eying the feeder, and it is a busy place! The male cardinal makes an appearance. I believe this is a nuthatch, hanging off the edge. A mocker, with a nice snowy backdrop.

The cowbirds are starting to show up. Unlike most of the other less than desirable birds, the cowbird is a native species. Cowbirds really are undesirables, too. They lay their eggs in the nests of other birds. The cowbird chicks generally hatch sooner than the others in the nests, giving them the advantage.

Well, this is a test post. Let me know what you think. If you happened here before seeing my original blog, you can see it here.
