Backyard birds and friend.

Junco, male and female Cardinal and squirrel. All stoking up for a cold Minus 22 C. night
With no sparrows around, to chase it away from the feeder, I was finally able to take pictures of this lovely little creature, the Red Breasted Nuthatch.
It has only been coming around for the last 1/2 year, and this Mourning Dove, instead of mourning about the minus 22 C temperature, fluffs up and finds shelter from the wind.
A good late day meal at the feeder also helps.
