I Have Birds!

Referencing my earlier post about buying a bird feeder, and then not having any birds.

Well, now I have birds !! They feed about 9:00am, so I don’t usually get to see them since I’m away at work. And it’s hard to get a photo of them. As I get too close to the door, they flit away.

Today, I had as many as eight at the feeder, or waiting in line. I was able to get some notes, and then later ID them to the best of my ability. Today’s visitors:

  • Black-capped Chickadee or Carolina Chickadee
  • House Finch (I had several of them)
  • some kind of sparrow maybe – hard to narrow these down just now (these were the 2nd largest group)
  • Tufted Titmouse
  • female Cardinal
  • a bluish-gray bird I’m not sure of; may be a Gray Catbird

I think that’s pretty cool. In addition to those, I’ve heard a bluejay; had several juncos on my lawn a week or so ago; and for years I’ve had a pair of mourning doves nest under my deck.

You may notice I slightly re-arranged the feeder, moving it away from the squirrel access.
