Winter Feeder Bird: White-throated Sparrow

The snow we received over the weekend has brought birds flocking to the feeders. White-throated sparrows, common throughout the year are particularly numerous now that much of their natural food is covered over by snow.

I’m certain that you will see more photographs of this particular location as the winter progresses. The cavity that the sparrow is perched on is section of a hollow branch where we place birdseed thereby creating an attractive natural background for photography while feeding our wild friends at the same time.

I am glad the birds in the area are responding to your clever feeding station. I don't have a tree like that but would use it if I did. Nice shot.

What a great spot for photographing the birds. I spent my snowy days doing the same here.

Merry Christmas Coy.

Perfect setting for your photography. The little sparrows know where to find some daily sustenence.
If I don't make it back before Christmas I just want to wish you and your sweet wife a Merry Christmas and a joyous New Year.
