At the feeder
Here are a few species that have been coming to the feeder lately. The sun is so low in the sky this time of year that photographing birds at the feeder is especially challenging, given the slow shutter speeds, diffused light, and dirty windows.
Always a treat, the Northern Flicker seems enormous when compared to the finches that usually visit the feeder.

Dark-eyed Juncos nest a block away from my house, but they only visit my feeder in the winter.
Native to eastern North America, Eastern Gray Squirrels have been introduced to cities on the west coast. They are quite attractive in their winter pelage, with their white ears, white halo around their tails, and the faint olive green streak down their backs. I find the concept of green fur rather intriguing.
