Winter Birding

I love the cooler weather and I love seeing all the birds coming in!

I have dark eyed juncos, black capped chickadees, chestnut backed chickadees, downy woodpeckers (in photo), northern flickers, house finches, gold finches, anna's hummingbirds, bushtits, and a song sparrow coming in. I also have the "snarlings" AKA starlings coming in but I try to ignore them.

I am anxiously awaiting the pine siskins and varied thrushes as the weather gets colder.

The trees may be barren but the birding is plentiful!

I have lived in Troutdale on the edge of Beaver Creek Canyon for three years. I have a variety of birds that visit my feeders. The Chickadees are the most reliable, they have a flightway to the sunflower seeds then wuickly back to the trees.
