I am always amazed at how long parents keep feeding their young long after they seem to be grown. I have seen both House Finches and Cardinals feeding their immature babies that look grown.

Still begs parent to feed him
Plenty within reach
Just like some of ours who sit…

Today we got our first snow of the season. The birds came back and forth to my suet and seed feeders all day long. Seems like all the birds in the woods came by sooner or later. The little birds jumped up on my butterfly bush and sat there posing for photos as I clicked away. The ice and snow on the branches make a great back drop. This is a Bird poem with many thousands of words words. See how many you can identify.
Hope you enjoyed my collection. Photos by Dwight L. Roth
