Backyard birds, January 5 2020

by Brent Eades

After taking a hiatus from this column for a year or two I thought I’d restart it.

The premise is pretty simple: these are birds I photograph in my backyard, as viewed through the window of my home office, which looks out on the feeders I hang in and around a large crabapple tree.

I’ll post periodic updates through the winter. In the spring and summer, I stop filling the feeders as the birds can find lots to eat without them, usually anyway.

American Tree Sparrow
American Goldfinch
Chickadee with peanut
Blue Jay
