Backyard Birds in SC Kansas

Red-breasted Nuthatch

White-breasted Nuthatch

Eurasian-collared Dove

Carolina Wren

Male Cardinal

Female House Finch

We are having some cold weather but little moisture.  We did get
some snow in sleet and pellets but it melted quickly.
With the cold weather, we get more variety of birds looking
for food.  This is the first year we've gotten the Nuthatches.
We had to clear a lot of bushes and overgrown tree limbs this past
Fall.  Consequently, we are having less White-crown Sparrows and
Harris's Sparrows. 

I've taken these photos through the window
with a Point n' Shoot camera.  I think the sensor
is wearing out...so, I'm sorry about the quality of 
these photographs.
