Here are a few newer shots from my backyard. I've moved my bird feeder to its winter spot closer to the house.

Before the weather really turned, I got this shot of some Sunday morning frost on our Chinese maple.


The sparrows were the first to accept the feeder in its new spot.


Then the woodpeckers. This one is a red-bellied woodpecker.


When the snow finally came everyone else started showing up.

A Junco -- They are hard to photograph in any real detail, so I'm very happy with this shot.


A Blue Jay


Nuthatches like this are twitchy little things who don't like to pose for a camera. In the second shot he's taking off heading to the feeder.

And then there are times when no birds are in sight at all. On those occasions I look for this fellow, a Cooper's Hawk.

Is it bad that I thought of alcohol when I saw the title?

(Beautiful pictures btw)
