Backyard Wintertime Nature in New Jersey

Turkey Vultures soaring over the backyard and birds visiting the snowed covered backyard birdfeeder: Mourning Dove, Turkey Vulture, Red-winged Blackbird, Northern Cardinal. My eBird Checklist. Both male and female Red-winged Blackbird and Northern Cardinal. Normally I don’t see the Red-winged Blackbirds this time of year. The snow may have forced them to look further for food.


Morning at the snow covered backyard birdfeeder. Individual images in the slideshow are available in my PhotoShelter Gallery.
