Barred Owl - A juvenile Barred Owl
The Barred Owl is featured on my North American Owl lens. This owl is often confused with the Barn Owl because of the similar name, but they look very different.
Winter Bird Feeder - Chickadees and Goldfinches feeding in the snow
The Black Capped Chickadee and American Goldfinch are seen here stocking up for the heavy winter snow that was approaching fast.

Junco - A regular at our bird feeder
This Junco was caught in the middle of a snowstorm and just couldn't resist the seeds that were out on the deck.
Downy Woodpecker - Completely royalty free bird photo for you to use!
The Downy Woodpecker is an easy bird to attract to your feeder in the Northeast if you just put out some fresh suet. Watch out -- squirrels like it too.
Nuthatch - The nuthatch comes by quick, eats, and leaves
The Nuthatch doesn't stick around long...it likes to take its food and eat it (or drill into it) elsewhere.
Baby Great Horned Owl - A juvenile Great Horned Owl that's only weeks old.
This young Great Horned Owl looks very fluffy right now, but will quickly outgrow this stage of its life and look more full grown in no time.
Why do Great Horned Owls have those big "ears" or "horns"?
Those "ears" or "horns" that you see on owls like the Great Horned Owl are merely tufts of feathers. These help with camouflage mostly, and are pretty much useless to the owl!
Northern Cardinal - Free photo of the Red Cardinal to use on your website
The Northern Cardinal is one of the most striking birds to visit your feeder in the winter months. The bright red color of the males is a stark contrast to the dull colors and white snow that blankets the ground.
Our feeder gets empty every few days. How about you?
How often do you fill up your birdfeeder?
Red Tailed Hawk - A bird that does a great job cleaning up!
A bird that does a great job cleaning up roadkill, keeping the rodent population down, and has incredible vision is the Red Tailed Hawk. Here it perches on a bird box, but this one's already empty. Its displaying immature colors as well.
Canadian Goose - A beautiful Canadian bird that's been problematic
The Canadian Goose is great at adapting to new environments and finding food, from natural food to taking handouts from humans. A little to adept...they've exploded in population and have been a nuisance to many offices, schools, businesses and home owners all over North America. Once they find an area they like, it can be difficult to get them to leave and take their droppings with them.
American Goldfinch - Two young American goldfinches hit the snow in search of food
The American Goldfinch is no dummy. This bird procreates and adapts to situations like busy neighborhoods well, finding nearby feeders and wildflowers to eat. You'll often see them come by in big bunches once they've established your area as a good place for dinner.
Jucno Picture - The juncos feed in the snow
As you can see, it already started to snow heavily. The juncos always come by when it's snowing to the feeder. If you look close, you can see the prints they leave in the snow...they sort of dig with their feet like chickens to get at seeds that fall into the snow.
Canadian Geese Flock - The Flying V formation of the Canadian Geese
Canadian Geese flying in formation are a beautiful site to see when they're on their migration route. This royalty free photo is entirely free for you to use.
Starlings - A large group of starlings feeding on the ground
Starlings are actually not native to North America. Over the years, this bird has proliferated greatly from the time it was brought over from Europe. You'll find large groups of these intelligent birds all over the continent.

Nuthatch - Link back to this lens and this nuthatch photo is yours to use for free!
The Nuthatch usually hangs upside down when its on the birdfeeder, but you can also find it on the suet from time to time.
Red Shoulder Hawk Chick - Juvenile photo of this bird
This juvenile baby Red Shoulder hawk might look cute now, but when it gets older, this is going to be one mean rodent killing machine!
Eastern Screech Owl
The Eastern Screech Owl is a common owl on the east coast of the United States. It's relatively small, and of course, nocturnal.
The American Kestrel
keeps the bug population down. One of its main sources of food is insects, and its hunting for them all day.
American Kestrel on Stop Sign - American kestrel photo
This American Kestrel must be self conscious of its weight, because its giving me a real nasty look. Or maybe it just spots dinner over my shoulder...
As common as this bird is, it doesn't visit our feeder all that much. This one lone bird was all that arrived in 2008, and they usually travel in large groups. Strange.

This Snow Bunting was seen on the coast of Massachusetts in the late winter months. The Snow Bunting is usually seen in the Arctic region, but migrates south to find more food in the winter months.
Snow Bunting - Free to use arctic bird photo
American Kestrel - Getting rid of mosquitoes everywhere
This American Kestrel picture is slightly grainy, but would make a great thumbnail photo.
