Nuthatch is another long-time visitor. It only stays for a few moments, grabbing a sunflower seed then flying back to the big spruce trees where it has its residency.

Goldfinch is one of the more colourful birds "in the hood". First sighting only, but it will show up more often during the spring.

So, that is a collection of garden birds that can be spotted through the "rear window" - regular visitors of the feeder area. There might be an odd surprise, but for more I will have to move my "birding operation" outside of the house. Hopefully the weather will improve, at least to the point to allow me staying on the balcony without the fear of getting the frozen bites :lol:

 

To be continued (in about 28 days). Have fun birding!

That's a pretty good collection from through the back window, and gorgeous photos of course.  I hope the weather fines up for you and we can see what is outside the window.

Think I'll take part in the RSPB's "Big Garden Birdwatch"

I did take part today. We are suppose to count for half an hour and this got me the amazing total of 3 House Sparrows and a Magpie :D

That is quite a collection from your garden, @xelasand very good photos, too! I do hope the weather and regulations will allow you to go out and find some more.

No, Tony, these are Rear Window birds :D. Balcony birds came when temperatures will be more humane.

I am pleased @Kalaharikindraised this again as it is only on re-appraisal that I realise  his problem and can sympathise. They must not publish "The Lady" in Ljubliana.

@xelas what a lovely collection of common but very cute garden birds, I'd be happy with those. Good to see the Nuthatch "upright", I think every photo Ive seen, and the ones Ive seen in person, he's been "upside-down"

 It is hard to be "upside-down" while walking on the ground :D. And yes, whenever I spot it on the tree trunk it is walking down, not up.

@xelas awesome shots. I want your garden. in fact, i want everyone else's garden because i see my garden birds 12 hours a day, 30-31 days a month (well 28 for Feb) and 12 months a year. so i want to see other garden birds. 

:unsure:

I had similat thoughts. Especially as it is going to be a challenge to find place to stay in the coming months, once we all start moving again
