This afternoon after I got home from church, filled the bird feeders and watched the fun and games. About 50 birds were fighting for the food.
I saw this single Hairy woodpecker working on the suet feeder and as I approached with my camera I was able to capture him on a limb.A lot of American Goldfinch were working the niger seed sacks.
Black capped chickadees kept coming to the feeders, but the House finch and House sparrows kept chasing them away. So I stood by the feeders to allow the chickadees to feed. These little darters kept coming in and stealing a sunflower seed and flying off.
After the sparrows and finch had emptied the sunflower feeder, I went out to fill it again. The chickadees followed me to the shed where I keep the food. After filling the feeder, the chickadees followed me back to the feeder tree, flying down and taking a seed as I carried it back.
Just another wild day in the snow covered ground of Idaho.
