It's been a good week for birds, although they rarely hang around until I can grab the camera and get into position to take their pictures. Today, all we seem to have right now are cardinals (lots of cardinals) and a small flock of sparrows. Usually, there would be juncos, chickadees, various and sundry finches, blue jays, starlings, wood peckers of various sizes, and so on. Needless to say, just because I wanted to take their pictures…. (I could probably get some pics at the other feeder in the backyard, but that would entail standing around in the cold and snow until they stopped worrying about me and came back to feed. So not happening.LOL) Because today's pics are so boring, I also threw in one from yesterday where the hawk was perched over the pond. He very resolutely kept his back to us, so no face pics.

Without further ado…
