Now that the garden has been put to bed for the winter, I have put out bird feeders for the birds who stay here in the area during the cold weather.
One of my favorite birds is the little tufted titmouse and right on cue he showed up at the feeder along with a dozen goldfinches. The goldfinches were a little too frenetic for me to get a good snapshot, but this little guy flew up to the branches of the redbud and posed for me for quite a while.
And then down to the patio table where I had managed to spill a ton of sunflower seeds trying to fill the feeder.
(These were all taken yesterday with the big camera).
