For Whom The Bell Tolls

Weekend mornings with my girlfriend, Missy, are always a great time for us.  Not only does she cook a fantastic breakfast, we are also treated with a bevy of wild birds in the backyard.  I often keep my camera handy just in case we get some interesting visitors.   Despite the frigid temperatures outside, the birds are out and about in droves.

Recently, the seed bell suspended over my deck fell apart after being devoured by a gang of starlings.  So, I put the remnants back on the rail to see if I could attract some smaller birds and it worked.

A woodpecker, who we have named Woody (duh), has been coming by daily to look for treats along with the chickadees.  He has now become a regular visitor and I bought a new seed bell for him.

All photos taken with a Pentax K-3 and a D-FA 100mm f2.8 macro.
