Snow Day: Animal Friends Addition

Snow Day: Animal Friends Addition (Dark-Eyed Junco) - DivineMrsDiva.com


It started snowing a couple weekends ago, which was met with a flurry of activity in our backyard as birds and squirrels (plus bunnies and a possum) stocked up on food before the cold and ice set in.  As you know, I love watching all these beautiful creatures and got a fair amount of video as well!


You can find the videos in my YouTube Shorts:
  • Birds, including the Dark-Eyed Junco, Scrub Jay, Song Sparrow, Bushtit, Cooper's Hawk, and Spotted Towhee
  • Squirrels, featuring my friends Thackery and Crispin
  • Stellar's Jays

This is Thackery.  He loves to stop by for chats, neighborhood news, and peanut time!

Stellar's Jays.  We have four regulars who show up almost every day.

Lots of Dark-Eyed Juncos are out every day!  They love all the seeds.

Snow Day: Animal Friends Addition (Bushtit) - DivineMrsDiva.com
This is a teeny little Bushtit.  They are about the size of a golf ball and typically
wander in groups.  When they stop by, we can have up to 20 bushtits on the
feeder at one time.

The Cooper's Hawk is a sight to behold!  One murdered a yellow bird in our
yard in the spring and I do not want a repeat.  He didn't stay long.
