Yellow-rumped Warbler by Darlene Betat

When snow or ice covers much of birds’ natural food, you may see some unusual visitors to your seed feeders and thawed birdbath.  Kinglets may be seen drinking from hummingbird feeders, Townsend’s Warblers eating suet, lots and lots of Varied Thrushes on ground feeders, and Bewick’s Wrens eating suet.  Of course, Anna’s Hummingbirds may practically camp out on your nectar feeder, too, and American Robins really love a de-iced birdbath!  What are you seeing in your backyard winter wonderland?
