15 October - Familiar autumn visitors

Mature female northern cardinal

In the late afternoon, the cardinals visit the feeders. Sometimes they even give out a hissing sound to chase off smaller birds.

Nuthatches: these look like two different birds, photographed a few minutes apart.

Tufted titmouse

Some birds are very, very cautious. The chickadee checks to make sure the coast is clear before taking a seed.
