Wintertime Backyard Nature in New Jersey.

A few more visitors to the birdfeeder and backyard: Turkey Vulture, Tufted Titmouse, European Starling, American Robin, House Finch, Dark-eyed Junco, White-throated Sparrow, Song Sparrow, Northern Cardinal. The Turkey Vultures were still roosting in the trees in the morning waiting for the sun to warm them up. First American Robin for the year.
