Birds in the Winter

Unlike veteran field birder and blogger Brownstone Birder I don’t feel comfortable with field I.D. of many smaller birds. However, this year’s harsh Winter season has provided many occasions to view birds at close range at my feeders. I have managed to photograph birds that I have seldom, or perhaps never, seen in field and wood. Attached herein are several photographs of birds seen through my back window here in Middletown. (Note: a loss of image clarity is the inevitable result of shooting through window panes; oh, and please correct me if I have misidentified any bird) (All photos: click to enlarge)

    It’s nice to be able to watch birds during this rough winter weather. Just so you know-I’m not always confortable identifying birds either. I’ve misidentified many birds along the way. I’m only an ameture compared to many of the birders I know.-Nice selection of photos!
