December In Kentucky 2016

December in Kentucky this year provided some very strange weather. We had wild temps that ranged from 73, sunny and windy to 2, dark and dreary. The birds flocked to my feeders more this year than ever as they attempted to keep up with the changing temps. It was a challenge for me to keep the feeders full especially on the very cold days but, I managed and the birds have rewarded me with some great shots of them in various positions. I've posted a few of them below.
