Are these shots in an enclosed enviorment or are they out in the wild?

How can you find so many different birds. Where I live, I'm lucky to see a single cardinal and bluejays for now. Winter stinks!!!!!!!!!!!!! thanks

Thanks to both of you.

Photo118... these are all shot in my yard at or near my feeder... so even though I haveseed and mealwormsto draw them in, it's still in the wild. Winter is when the birds come in to the feeder because seed/berries/insects are scarceelsewhere. They don't even visit my feederduring the summer. Asfall and winter progress, I gradually havea wider variety as food becomesmore difficultto obtain. The birdsare my favorite part ofwinter. Do you have a feeder? If not, hang one and keep it filled with black oil sunflower seeds and that alone will bring in a lot.:-)

photo118,
Where in the world are you located? Its winter here, but there are still a good number of birds around. Like gracie328 said, with a bird feeder you'll be surprised how much will come in the winter. My Carolina Wren has come back after being driven away by a House Wren over the summer. I also get titmice, juncos, & white-throated sparrows. In the summer there is a bit more diversity. And I'm less than 15 miles from Boston (not a small city!)

Of course, as seen in my earlier post, I've been going after owls lately.

Eric
