Finally, new action at the feeder!

Category: Bird Brain Blog | Posted: Mon Apr 18, 2011 9:04 pm

Up until today, the action at the feeder has been pretty boring. But now the Goldfinch males have turned fully yellow and back. They add a fresh burst of color to the yard. Very colorfull when both male Cardinals and the Goldfinch are at the feeder.

The Downey Woodpeckers have learned how to get into the hanging basket to get peanuts. Also the large Red bellied woodpeckers have learned where they are at also. Both of them together will eat 15 or 20 peanuts a day. The Titmice have competion now!

This evening we had a new visitor to the feeder. A male Rose-Breasted Grosbeak has been feeding this afternoon. This is an area that is part of their territory, but not a common bird here. So it was well worth seeing him. The last time I had seen one here at the house was in June of 1988.

Wow you keep birding records to know when you last had the rose-breasted grosbeak around. Bird feeders are such a joy to have.

For the birds that are not so common, I write down the date that I see them in the bird ID book that I have. Good way to help the memory.

We have been enjoying the Goldfinches here too. Those Rose Breasted Grosbeaks sure are pretty birds aren't they? It's a treat for us to see them at our feeders.
