In fact it was so crowded you could say it was standing room only. Mostly sparrows this afternoon, the occasional cardinal or nuthatch...and of course the ever-present squirrels. Scar is watching through the window thinking "Ah...smorgasbord!"

I'll bet scar is a cat. We stopped a cat from catching a squirrel the other day. We saved a squirrel's life!

We get sparrows a lot and not very often a solitary Robin that will hop in by the window if he is really hungry but I never have got my camera ready and he goes off really quick as he is a shy one too. Love the photo only standing room there yes.

The sparrows fly off at the slightest noise but always return about 30 seconds later.

@lovinangelsinstead21 We haven't had any 'hard' freezes yet thankfully. A few mornings have seen a skin of ice on puddles, but nothing serious.

Are those all Cardinals, baby Cardinals and the big three or those different birds and they look like baby Cardinals because of the adult ones. Maybe I am just biased, Love my St. Louis Cardinals. Go Cardinals. What the hell did I just say?

@JolietJake The male one is the mostly red one. I did not know females had that much grey. Those uniforms are not very accurate because even male not all red. lol

I see that you also have an invasion of sparrows, they are the most numerous group coming to eat.

Hey Mabel, there's a super good cafe over here. C'mon, Mabel, get over here. Never mind the squirrel. He'll be gone sooner than you can blink at a drop of rain.

Yep. I don't usually get pictures of a flock of sparrows like that, normally it might be 5-6 out there.

LOL (Scar). I'm surprised that the birds don't feel threatened by the squirrels @JolietJake .
