Greer, SC, USA
This is my first year participating and my first submission. My feeding area is where my pool area transitions via wooded area and path to the lower back yard. There are rows of deciduous and evergreen tree groupings on three sides of my back yard. Along the path there are boxwoods in two hedge formations that backs up to a row of large azalea bushes. I typically watch from my kitchen window, but when I have time I sit on the covered deck and watch or take pictures.
Chickadees, Nuthatches & Titmice
Tufted Titmouse and Carolina Chickadee - they go back and forth from the suet cake to the tube feeder.
