Throughout most of this year I have been neglecting the small birds that live in the woods behind our house and frequent our bird feeder. They have become regulars, at least as long as I remember to refill when the feeder is empty. Today, the last day of 2015, I put out a tray of roasted peanuts as a special treat for them. They seemed to love it. As of two hours ago all the peanuts were gone. However, photos of the birds remain for us to enjoy.
Woodpeckers also showed up, but the following female ignored the peanuts and climbed up toward the regular bird feeder.
Happy New Year and the best of everything to all of you in 2016!
