Cold Day at the Feeder

Cold Day at the Feeder

 

A bitter cold day and the local flock of Redpolls descend on our Niger seed feeder for a free handout. Cold winter days take their toll on wild birds, and the smaller they are, the harder they feel it. These bright little guys spend most of the day hovering between the protection of nearby bushes and the feeders, keeping up their food intake to keep warm.
