Feeders Are Going Crazy

The feeders are in non-stop use with this icy weather.  There is constant motion, and probably twenty birds at a time are at the two seed feeders, the two suet feeders, the birdbath and water on the driveway, the ground under the feeders, and in the trees cracking open seeds.

The water in the birdbath never thawed out today.

Just this afternoon, and even with only coming occasionally to the window to see what's going on, I've seen these species (some in large numbers): Carolina chickadee, tufted titmouse, house finch, cardinal, goldfinch, red-breasted nuthatch, junco, mourning dove, pine warbler, ruby-crowned kinglet, Carolina wren, robin, bluebird, red-winged blackbird, downy woodpecker, and red-bellied woodpecker (shown below - a little blurry).
