Birds at Beaver Lake

To continue testing my rental lens, I headed to Beaver Lake Nature Center anticipating that the would be high feeding activity due to an incoming storm front.  Was I ever right!  Hundreds of birds were around and I got some nice shots. Enjoy the photos...

A Goldfinch decidedly upset about the April snowstorm!

A Downy Woodpecker scoping out lunch.

Purple Finch - what a beauty!  (Thanks to my Dad for the correct ID!)

A brilliant male Cardinal.

Finally, a closeup of a Red Squirrel munching away.

Happy Spring!  (Yeah, Right!)
