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
Invasion of the dark-eyed juncos
Big bird, little seed.
As the blue jay moved around the ring of the feeder, the house sparrow kept moving around the ring, too
Dark-eyed junco in flight
It appears that a blue jay has to point its beak straight up to swallow.
