Watching the birds at feeding time is always interesting. So many varieties flit in and out. We have two feeder poles in the garden, each with four types of feeders on them. Both are located fairly close to trees so the birds can take shelter if necessary. There are other types of feeders in different locations around the garden.
Enjoy some of the backyard visitors.
The female grosbeak on the coconut feeder.
The male grosbeak at the coconut feeder.
The red bellied woodpecker at the peanut feeder.
The nuthatch loves the peanut feeder too.
The oriole at the new oriole feeder.
The male ruby throated hummingbird at the same oriole feeder. There is a hummingbird feeder on the other side of this pole but the hummer seems to prefer this feeder. Perhaps it is the nice landing ring all around that attracts it, because the food is the same.
The feeder pole at the back of the garden is busy at dinner time. This one is located fairly close to the honeysuckle shrub for snacking on the berries when seeds or nuts aren’t the choice.
This young grosbeak was rescued after a loud thunk on the front window. At first it didn’t move and we got worried, but after a minute or two being held in some warm hands and then being placed into the garden it recovered and flew back to its family.
Happy bird watching. Nature never fails to amaze me.
