This morning, on the first day of 2015, many birds came to our back yard, apparently quite hungry as they emptied more than half of our large feeder in just a few hours. There were chicadees, titmice, blue jays, cardinals, juncos, and maybe others as well.
A pretty female cardinal perched on the yellow magnolia tree and looked at me curiously as I took the following shot.
Later on, a blue jay landed then took off almost immediately. I barely had time to take this shot.
