Mid-Winter Backyard Birds Slideshow

Mid-winter in Maine brings many birds to our feeding stations. The birds devour the offerings we serve up, gaining much needed energy to take them through our cold winter nights. Occasionally, we get a stray bird who should have long ago ventured to the warmer climate further to our south.

The Yellow-rumped Warbler has been visiting our feeders daily since the end of November. Through blizzards and sub zero temps, the Butter Butt is a trooper when it comes to surviving the winter Maine is famous for. This tiny bird doesn’t take any flack from the other much larger birds. He will chase away any bird that impinges upon “his suet feeder.”

Enjoy the following slideshow. Although there are not a wide variety of birds shown below, I present our “regulars” who can always be counted on to be at our feeders at any given time. Enjoy!

The following photos in the slideshow were taken with a Canon 7D and a Canon 400mm f/4 L IS lens. Adjust the speed of the slideshow by clicking SLOW, MED, or FAST.

Happy birding!
