Happy New Year!

happy new year
A snowy January 1, 2019. (I refilled the bark butter feeder as soon as I photographed this hungry little bird.)

We have had a lot of snowy days already this winter. This little bird is a female yellow-rumped warbler. I had a lot of visiting birds today, so it was a good day to get the camera out.


Happy 2019!!

  1. I’m sure the birds appreciate the feeders with all the snow. Love the photo.

    1. Thanks, Tim. It turned out to be a fine day stuck at home, photographing birds through dirty kitchen windows. I got a couple of an adorable ruby-crowned kinglet, and I’ll be putting those up in a day or two. I had not had the camera out in a while, and it made me feel good in spite of the snow! 🙂

  2. Lovely photos Susan, I had to look up “Bark Butter!” Happy new year to you and yours.

    1. Hi, Mel! First, thank you for coming by. As you know, I am already tired of this snowy winter (last winter was exceedingly mild, in contrast). But yesterday had wonderful conditions for photographing birds against huge snowflakes. It was a gift. Once it is light, I’m going to shovel the driveway and sidewalks, and I’ll be muttering, but yesterday was one of those days that will stand out! 🙂

  3. Good Morning Susan, We’re in South Carolina, where the most common bird in our bushes are the yellow-rumped warblers. It always amazes us that such big sounds come out of such little beings. Love your photo–thank you!

    1. Hi, Carol! I haven’t checked your weather, but hopefully it is warmer than here or in your Colorado home! Thank you for telling me about the yellow-rumped warblers there. Last year was the first year I had seen one. Yes, I can imagine a yard with bushes full of the warblers, and sounds everywhere 🙂 )))))))))) Thanks for stopping by, and continue to enjoy South Carolina!

  4. Hi Susan, winter birds are so interesting to watch as they forage for seeds and nuts in the freezing weather. Thanks for sharing these photos, and Happy New Year.

    1. Hi, Juanita! Happy New Year to you and Jack! As you know, I am not a fan of snow, but yesterday was so much fun watching all the birds coming to the feeders. And the light was so wonderful, like a giant umbrella. Thanks for stopping by!
