For the birds

Remember that blog about the mealworms? Well they are really paying off right now. The snow started coming down about 8:30 last night and it is now morning and it is still coming. So far I have about a foot and it is supposed to snow all day.


Red bellied feeding on the suet. This is probably the same one from last week that I posted, he's a regular.



Little Downy Woodpecker.

I began scattering the worms onto the deck and under the deck railing.


Carolina Wren. 
This little guy was sneeking into the garage and steeling mealworm from the growing container earlier this year.



That is quite a mouthfull for one Chickadee but he is not going to let go.



I have noticed that the Junco's eat the worms in two bites.



Hey, what's down there?


A feast for the Titmose and Junco.

I'm still waiting for the Piliated Woodpecker and Blue Birds to show up.






Here it is 6:02 and it has been snowing since 8:30 last night.
I have just a little over 22 inches, about and inch an hour and it is still coming down.
It has been a fun day


Enjoy your day and look for more critters at Camera Critter.

Hey! No Fair! How come you folks down south are getting all our snow? Up here in northern NY we're missing out on this latest storm.

Beautiful birdies! I'm glad you're so good to them.

Nice Catch. Love your critter. Hope you can find time to visit mine.

So beautiful! But I am glad it is you and not me! I don't mean that rudely! We sure get our share in here in Buffalo, and I know we will get more soon ( seems we always get hit with something on Christmas Eve just as we are heading to church!). Stay safe and warm, and keep treating those birdies so special!

The mealworms were a hot ticket today. A male Cardinal ate 9 of them before he was run off by a Mockingbird. Cardinals seem to tenderize them with their bill before swallowing. Bluebirds appear to inhale them. Titmice hold them between their feet and peck away. Guess it's like eating corn on the cob, everyone has their own method.
