I have had to heavily crop this photo of this beautiful Advocet as it was amongst dozens of ducks.

I'm down (but not completely out) with crappy throat fun.
I'm so glad I have the bird feeders less than 20 feet from my bedroom window. (I love watching these guys)
This is the feisty Carolina Wren that braved the "Cowbird Invasion."

One at my sunflower/suet feeder this morning with 18 inches of snow that fell since midnight. Quite the riot in the front yard now as about 100 birds of different species are clamoring for the food I put out.

The Mandarin Duck must be one of the most colourful birds. How can you not take loads of pictures of such a beautiful elegant photogenic bird. This is the male, the female is just a mottled brown in colour, beautiful also in it's own right.

^ the Mandarins are just outstanding. Such amazing colors. Sadly I've never seen one so loving your captures!

Now of all the birds in the world this little guy is my favorite, simply because he's smart enough to know I have the food and doesn't
freak out and fly away.
