Backyard Autumn Nature in New Jersey.

I ran out of bird feed last month. Now that I have a reliable vehicle again, I picked up a bag of black (oil) sunflower seeds and a bag of mixed bird seeds. It took a couple of days for birds to come back to the feeder.  It was cold enough for the birdbath to freeze over last night. The birds that show up now are the ones that stay for the winter. So far today a mix of sparrows, finches, titmice, woodpeckers, and blue jays showed up. The birds seem only interested in the sunflower seeds, and ignored the bird seed mix containing cracked corn and other seeds.

Individual images from the slideshows can be viewed here.
