The past several days we have had birds in our porch because we have had lots of snow (!) and they have taken shelter on our porch. Because we have an outside cat we have cat food on the porch and the birds are having the Goodlife®. :-)

There were other species of birds that I didn't catch on camera like the Blue Jay and the Mourning Dove who wouldn't cooperate with me. To photograph birds you have to be a very patient person. I got these pictures after many tries (these birds wouldn't stay still!).
Note: If you are interested in birds think about participating in the Great Backyard Bird Count February 12-15. What you do is count the birds that you see in your yard, park, or pond for at least fifteen minutes. You can do it one day or all four days for as long as you want. Then go to the GBBC website and enter what species you saw and the number of those certain species. This helps ornithologists from Cornell, Audubon, and Bird Studies Canada to see how many birds from each species are in certain areas.
