Wordless Wednesday (Not) - Cold Front Coming

My first post of 2016 finds us waiting on the arrival of a cold front and maybe a little snow. I'm not sure there will be much accumulation but it will be a change from the mild temperatures we have experienced recently. The temperatures are going to dip into the teens at night and not climb much above freezing during daylight hours this week. Brr-r-r-r!

I put the bird feeders out, and it didn't take long for the first neighbors to arrive. The woodpeckers really like the suet cakes. I'm not sure that I have ever seen one on a standard feeder.

On the other hand, cardinals definitely are seed feeders and I don't think I have ever seen on a suet cake feeder. Maybe if I put a piece of suet cake in a standard feeder, they might try it.

This little fellow seemed to be unable to make up his mind which feeder to try out first. He eventually settled on the traditional seed feeder. I admire these critters for being able to adapt to some pretty substantial weather changes. Me, I just grab a cup of coffee, get next to the fireplace, and try to find something to watch on television or play on the computer. How about  you.


  1. Nice sharp as a tack photos driller. It is kind of cold over here in Tulsa. Not a whole lot of snow.

  2. Great shots of some lovely feathered friends!

  5. Wonderful macro shots of our feathered friends ~ Hope you don't get much snow.

  6. We feed the birds too. We have hummingbirds and lots of sparrows. We feed them year around. In the summer months we can hardly keep up with all the hummingbirds.

    I like the fireplace and a good book.

    Have a fabulous Wordless Wednesday. ☺

  7. That woodpecker looks like a juvenile - or is it?

    1. That is a Downy Woodpecker and he is full grown. They get about the size of a sparrow.
