I have made it my goal to photograph all the different kinds of birds that come to the feeders. I put out nyjer seed, suet, and sunflower seeds, and in the winter, I get a lot of guests.
The feeders are hung right next to the windows, and are surrounded by bushes and trees, so they have plenty of protection. It also means I can get pictures that look like they are in the wild, but are really taken from my sofa.

**Updated to include new birds on the suet feeder.
