My first customer was not a surprise. The Tufted Titmouse is always one of the first birds to check out a new feeder. They are such curious little things. They often pave the way for other birds so it seems since after the Titmouse has been to the feeder other birds soon follow. Too bad they are so quick or I am so slow because this is a bit out of focus. I will keep trying for a good shot. Other takers of the new feeder was a House Finch (female) you know they wouldn't take long to stop by. Also a Carolina Chickadee, with its back to us.
Here is a better shot of the Carolina Chickadee. It has safflower seed in its mouth. They look so much like the Coal Tits that are in England. There is a young man (14 yr old) named Joe that is starting a nature blog. He would like it if you popped in to see what is in his garden. I posted this chickadee for him to compare the Coal Tits in his garden with the Carolina Chickadees in our garden . If you go here you too can compare them.
