Cardinal, Junco & Chickadee

As spring approaches, winter is slow to end in central Appalachia. These wild birds (Northern Cardinal, Dark-Eyed Junco, and Black-Capped Chickadee) congregate in an apple tree near bird feeders. Arrival of spring will start new plant growth and replenish fresh food sources for livestock and the local wildlife.
