Camera Critters #96 - bird feeders

Camera Critters by Misty Dawn, go here to see who's participating.

A bird feeder can be an important help when photographing birds. The Cardinal is a neat bird that comes to my feeder. The male has such great colors in the Winter. There is a bird flying out of focus behind this one.
The Grackles do also come and put on a show, they are a very noisy bird.
The Morning Dove and the Gray squirrel also feed.
The Whitetail Deer also enjoy a bite.
The Black Squirrel eats the corn and the bird seed.

I do hope you had fun with the critters at my bird feeders.

Nice shots of all your creatures.

You have a lovely selection of visitors. How do you ever tear yourself away from watching them?

Oh --you know I have fun with my birdfeeders---constantly!!!!!

Looks the feeder is at a perfect location for the deer. I'll bet he thinks that is there JUST for him...

Did you get alot of snow? We got a dusting here ---but it is pretty.

Hello dear Tom,
First of all, I don't want to repete myself but I DO LOVE YOUR HEADER! Please, put this fabulous moment, I mean shot, in your sidebar when you will change the header! :)
Well, I have a great smile now because I love your friends, love the sweet deer, the smart squirrel, and the others little friends.
Your post brings to me so good feelings!
This week I didn't have time to prepare Luna's post, I know...it's a shame...She is really upset with me, but she needs to understand that big brother ( my son ) is coming back to Brazil, to the University, in the next days, and I'm enjoy some time with him, going out and travelling as well ( today we had some shop in Belgian and tomorrow I intend to go to Germany to have lunch - Luxembourg is located in a strategic position in Europe!) ;)
Have a great Sunday my friend
Hugs
Léia

I just bought a sock feeder for finches, or others...I can't wait to get some customers! Your feeders look like they draw a lot of attention!

I indeed had fun! What a bunch of fun sightings.

twobarkingdogs said...

My two dogs would love to hang out at your place ... so they could chase the birds and squirrels!!

Gaelyn said...

Always enjoy seeing your backyard critters Tom. The Grackles look a little frosted. And I have to chuckle every time I see a squirrel on the wooden tryke.

George said...

You have many appreciative critters at your feeders. It doesn't look as if you turn anyone away!

Darla said...

The Cardinals do have great color in the winter and with that snow in the background, just beautiful. I adore seeing the deer at the "bird" feeder! I also, grin everytime I see this header...

I love those critters especially the deer. Wish I could see them in my backyard too.(dreaming..)

Happy Weekend!

Coy said...

Spot on Tom, if it were not for the feeders I wouldn't be getting much of anything now.

Nice header, that fish looks like it could really put up a tussle.

Michael said...

Looks like that squirrel is eating while driving his trike. Naughty critter. Love the deer.

Great shots at your feeders. What joy feeding birds brings! I had never seen a black squirrel before, and this is the 2nd picture in a week. Is this the year of the black squirrel or what? Enjoy the rest of your weekend! ~karen

We have a pair of cardnals here in Az. It seems as if all the other birds turn with awe and wonderment at his arrival at the feeder.

Hilary said...

I get them all except deer. How I'd love that. :)

Janie said...

You have a very active feeder. Photographing all the visitors must keep you busy. Fun photo! Love the deer having a snack at the feeder.

ksdoolittle said...

Birdfeeders are so much fun! Yours doubles as a deer feeder, how cute is that! And triples as a squirrel feeder, too. I've never seen a black squirrel before. Didn't even know they existed. They are pretty cool. ~ks

SaraG said...

Awesome photo's Tom!!
We have had a busy time at our feeders too, but no deer :o(
Take care!!

Twisted Fencepost said...

Yes, I did!
But I have a question.
Is that a feather sticking up on the deer's back?
I told you they would sprout wings!!!

NicoleB said...

That's a wonderful collection again.
I love that black squirrel.
