The last two days I have had different cardinals flying into my patio windows, not hard it is almost like they are knocking, they will lightly fly into the window and hit it with their
Beak about five times then fly away.
I put food out for them and they keep doing this.
Any insight why they are doing this?

This is an interesting link to identifying Carolina Chickadees versus Black Capped.  I still don't know that I could tell the difference unless I captured one and looked!! I love my chickadees!!

I suppose it will come eventually, I see you were able to take some beautiful finch photo's with the nice red twigs accentuating the coloring on the birds! Very artistic! ;)

Nancy we had an inch yesterday, after sleet and rain. There is still a lot of snow on the grass and our pond is frozen. It could be worse so I can't complain anymore. Just looking forward to spring and so are the birds!

You're going to have fun with that camera Linda! Are you still getting hit in your "neck of the woods"? C'mon SPRING!

Ok Ladies that was a good question. It says for low light and I believe it will take photos of other animals. Maybe the rabbits and deer I hope so. I will try it once the snow melts. It is snowing again. It 60 in Russia and in the 20's here with more snow than we need.

I bet that is it--the silhouette pictures.  I know at certain times of the day, we have shadows where the feeders are.

I would guess only if the bird was "backlit" by the sun? You might need to avoid a "silhouette" which would make for a dark bird.

I would answer that for use at night ...Linda will know for sure.

My only question is that the birds come in the daytime.  Why the flash?  I can see it for animals that come at night.  Maybe the flash makes it more clear?  Just wondering.

"There are big holes in the pasture, hope they are just the gray squirrels and not something bigger, or snakes. Gonna have to get rid of the darn gray squirrels."

"It's either sand or hard pan from being walked on by cows for 50+ years. There is an old pile of cow poo to til in.  It was pasture for our milk cows & beef."

"2 days before new moon plant above ground growers. From full to smaller plant root crops and transplant. They won't grow up they might rot before they germinate."

"Keryn I wish I made that much money then I could quit worrying about things that need to get paid. I have to have a huge sale with all the junk at the farm and more plants from here. Everything there is dead from no water for the past 2 years."
