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.
