Hello Winter Backyard Visitors!

Bird Resting and Getting a Drink

We only see these birds during the winter in North Texas. They were hungrily eating the sunflower seed in both of my feeders.

What kind of bird is this?

Bird Resting and Getting a Drink

This one got a drink and rested for a few seconds before continuing to eat.

A Visitor and New Blooms!

I heard this strange bird call and searched the tree for the source.  I was finally able to snap a couple of pictures. I’m not sure what kind of bird this is – I’ve not seen one in my North Texas yard before. It was all by itself. Does anyone know what it is?

I bought this redbud tree for one dollar many years ago as a bare root tree – It came as a package: ten trees for ten dollars!
