Blue Jay and Squirrel. It is cold out, and the bird bath is still frozen for the squirrel to walk across.

Backyard Wintertime Nature in New Jersey.

It has been very cold, and the local critters came out looking for food on this sunny morning. This is the first time that a crow came up onto the deck. It looks like it needs a bath, but all the water is frozen.

Wintertime Backyard Nature in New Jersey.

It snowed last night, but only about an inch. By afternoon, the snow melted and/or evaporated. A number of small birds (Dark-eyed Junco, Marsh Wren, Black-capped Chickadee, Tufted Titmouse), and a Blue Jay visited the bird feeder. A Red-bellied Woodpecker chased the Blue Jay away. Later on a Squirrel got up onto the bird feeder to feast on some sunflower seeds.

Backyard Wintertime Nature in New Jersey.

A Marsh Wren kept pushing whole sunflower seeds out of the bird feeder while looking for opened seeds. By the afternoon the feeder was almost empty, and the squirrels below were happy.
