Snow Birds

Some birds head south for the winter; others adapt to the New Jersey winter with the cold and snow. We do make sure we have plenty of food out for the birds. In the top photo, a Carolina wren takes refuge in the duck house we put up (that no duck has ever used). In the middle, a sparrow digs through the snow for some seed. We did clear the railing and leave some seed, but it quickly got covered. In the bottom photo, a red bellied woodpecker enjoys a peanut.

Just discovered a red bellied woodpecker at one of our feeders. New to your blog. Great photographs! I have a video post about some other visitors we get during the winter in NJ (I'm in Cumberland Co) that I think you'll enjoy:
