Snowfall and the tilt of this bird feeder full of sunflower seeds did not deter these birds. Northern cardinals (Cardinalis cardinalis) and dark-eyed junkos (Junco hyemalis) were the primary visitors. The male cardinal is bright red and the female is a soft green-gray with red accents. Both have red beaks. The male junco found on the US East Coast has a pinkish beak and is slate gray on the top half of the body and soft white on the lower half. This photo was taken in February 2014 in Cambridge, MD USA.
