Backyard Wintertime Nature in New Jersey.

There have been a number of comments in the local neighborhood site about the lack of birds at bird feeders this winter. I am still seeing some, maybe not as many as last year. It has been warmer, so maybe some of the birds are finding other sources of food. Today, the following birds have been feeding on my patio and at my bird feeder: Blue Jay, Brown-headed Cowbird, Northern Cardinal, and Red-bellied Woodpecker.
