This is the Massachusetts State bird. And I have about 400 of them who visit my yard. Today I realized enough snow has melted that I can finally get to my bird feeders to fill them. It was pretty dreary and a steady drizzle soaked me by the time I got back inside. But it’s done. Before winter I had ideas of stocking the feeders daily and getting National Geographic worthy shots of cardinals in snow, or bluebirds flitting joyfully from feeder to feeder. Alas Winter hit with a vengeance this year and even with snow shoes I couldn’t quite keep the feeders full. So I started fresh today. A new feeder with black sunflower seeds and two boxes of suet are now welcoming my feathered friends back to the yard. Although this bird is so common I was thrilled to see him hop on the feeder only moments after I put it up.  Thank you little Chickadee for not holding a grudge.


Happy Friday!!



P.S. I have no idea why I left my ISO at 640 for this shot. I think that was left from whatever I was doing yesterday at City Hall. Der, at least I was smart enough to have left it in Aperture Priority (which I actually rarely use anymore so it’s weird that I even had that on, but whatever!).
