Birds in New Jersey 2017

Snowstorm, 14 March 2017
Blue Jay inspects the seeds.... learning how to use the birdfeeder

Dark-eyed junco and female house sparrow on the left; white-throated sparrow and dark-eyed junco on the right

Usually on the ground kicking the snow, a white-throated sparrow uses a birdfeeder during the snowstorm


Male house sparrow; grackle

Best guess: a female red-winged blackbird

Big bird, little seed.
