Song Sparrows and Fuzzy-Toed Nutkin

My contribution to Eileeninmd's Saturday's Critters #112. Here are some song sparrows from when the snow was still around. Both house sparrows and song sparrows join the cardinals in the backyard. (I'm also linking to Anni's I'd Rather Be Birdin'.)




Of course Nutkin gets in on the party (post title reference):

Great photos!
There is a lot of competition here, too, between the birds and the squirrels

Sweet little sparrows! That's a great shot of the sparrow with wings fully extended!
Nutkin has claimed top spot!

thanks for adding this post link to I'd Rather B Birdin' this week....To have all these in your own back yard is making me quite jealous.

The birds are probably glad the snow is gone, I've often wondered how their tiny feet can take all the cold temperatures. The Cardinals are great, I would so love to have some here, Thunder. I'm sure the birds and squirrel really appreciate the seed, ours seem to always be watching for when we will put some out.

So many birds love to feed off the ground. Then, of course, we can't see them. Except on your blog post.

So that's a nutkin! I like seeing ours but sometimes they overwhelm the feeders and I scare them away... for a few minutes.
