Another dusting of snow in the NE on Friday night (up to 2 inches here in NY) brought a huge crowd to our feeders today. Here are some shots. All were taken with the new 300 mm f/2.8, some with the TC-14E.

A Tufted Titmouse huddling against the icy wind while waiting to hop on the feeder.

Today was definitely a woodpecker day. At one time this morning there were 4 Downeys around the feeders, one male pecking at the suet log, while a male and a female were on opposite sides of the cage feeder, and another female was searching for food in a Japanese Maple tree while waiting her turn at the feeders. While two of the Downeys were still there a pair of Red-bellied Woodpeckers came by. The male got some suet from the cage feeder, and then while the female took her turn, he went pecking around in a tree.

Thanks for all the kind words. Yesterday was an exceptional day for bird photography. I got way more keepers than usual. Unfortunately, I did not do as well today. Details are in a new thread.
