|Cardinal Female with Seeds|
Decided to check out the swamp area as that had been so busy last weekend. With the swamp water frozen, it was much less so, but still, several robins and grackles flitting around. A red-winged blackbird could be heard off in the distance. I started to head down the path to the lower gardens, when a small bird flew in and landed on a tree trunk. As I zoomed in on it with my binoculars, I was delighted to see a brown creeper! They really are the cutest! Just as I had read, it combed the tree bark looking for yummy edibles and then would fly off to another tree and start all over again, thus making it too difficult to photograph.
Several chickadees, song sparrows and titmice were busy in the lower gardens. Funny, but I didn't see one goldfinch.
