More Birds From Around the Aerie

When I got home from my birding expedition on Thursday, the feeders were being hit hard by the horde. I had filled them up around 7 AM and Terry had done so again around 11 AM, but by 1:30 PM they needed filling again. *sigh*

Some of them should have headed north by now. The Pine Siskins and Common Redpolls nest way up north in the coniferous forests of Canada. The rest of the crew are found around this area all year long.
