Fall birds feeding

A few shots, including YouTube video, of birds feeding in my garden

A new experiment for me – embedding my YouTube video of a cardinal feeding a youngster.  It’s a bit late in the year so I think the mild September and October weather allowed an extra brood. There is also a slightly out of focus American Robin shovelling down berries from the thorn bush – there was a whole flock of them

 

Here are a few stills of the same birds:

It is pretty safe from predators among those huge thorns.

Here are a few shots of a sparrow trying to keep its balance while stretching out to get grass seeds:
