Backyard Springtime Nature in New Jersey.

Small birds at and on the ground below the bird feeder. A number of seeds had been dumped on the ground during the wind storm the other night. Some birds only feed at the feeder, others only on the ground, and some work both locations. In today’s set, House Finch, Goldfinch, Dark-eyed Junco, and Mourning Pigeon. As it started getting dark, the deer came through so I had to up the ISO for the images.
