Birdwatching: A few photos from out the rear window.

I'm kind of stuck inside today; not that I can't go out, I just don't feel like it. I've been up since 0330 when the power went out and I drug, or dragged; depending on which side of the grammar debate you come down on; the generator out of the barn into a freezing rain. Ten hours later power was restored and the ice is melting, but it's still pretty dang cold out there and my motivation level is low!

So I was sitting here looking out the rear window at the frenzy around the bird feeder (It took them less than 24 hours to empty a full feeder yesterday!) and decided I would just troll through my camera for some of the bird photos I haven't cleared out yet.

I'm not an ornithologist, and find field guides an exercise in frustration, so, I'll put down what I think the bird is but don't beat me up for being wrong.

And I really wish I could upload the full 12G jpegs but we're on a satellite internet connection here with only limited usage allowed before they choke us down to a crawl that dial-up could run circles around.

Is this a Black-capped or a Carolina Chickadee?

A Finch of some sort? Not happy about being photographed either
