Some bird activity at the bird feeders — American Goldfinch and Blue Jay. But then the rogue Black Squirrel figured out how to get up and work on the sunflower seeds. Afterwards, I reconnected the electric fence cable to the bird feeders. It shouldn’t impact the birds since they don’t touch both the ground and feeder at the same time. The squirrel on the other hand has two paws on the grounded center post.

Before it started snowing, a squirrel figured out how to get up onto the bird feeder and start chowing down on the sunflower seeds. By mid-afternoon the snow started to fall. It came down pretty heavy for a while. During a lull later in the afternoon, the birds came back. A Red-bellied Woodpecker, Tufted-titmouse, and American Goldfinch (winter plumage).

Morning walkabout in the yard with a macro and telephoto lens. Flowers, wildflowers, black swallowtail butterfly, and the immature American Goldfinch that has been pulling the petals off the Zinnia flowers.
