Backyard Wintertime Nature in New Jersey.

I’m not sure of the ID of bird in the first two images. It looks like the dark-eyed junco’s, but it has a brown rather than grey and black feathers.

Backyard Springtime Nature in New Jersey.

Small birds at and on the ground below the bird feeder. A number of seeds had been dumped on the ground during the wind storm the other night. Some birds only feed at the feeder, others only on the ground, and some work both locations. In today’s set, House Finch, Goldfinch, Dark-eyed Junco, and Mourning Pigeon. As it started getting dark, the deer came through so I had to up the ISO for the images.

Late-Autumn Backyard Nature in New Jersey: Birds

A flock of tiny Dark-eyed Slate-colored Juncos stopped by to work the debris left over after mowing my wildflower garden. I hope they leave some seeds for next years wildflowers. The images were taken through a double-paned glass window which didn’t help the white-balance or focus.
