I decided to stick a feeder to my bedroom window so I would be able to see the birds from my room. A Hairy Woodpecker was one of the first birds to come to the suet feeder, followed by many more birds. I do get a little mad when they come to the feeder and start pecking away when I'm trying to sleep.
A Northern Pintail pair have taken up residence in a pond off the Interstate in Sioux City, IA. Despite the cold temperatures they are still around. When I went to get pictures of them they swam right into the fountain!
This picture shows a Northern Shrike in flight. My mom and I saw it when we were out and about and tried to get a picture of him but he was a little stubborn.
