Things are changing.

Category: Bird Brain Blog | Posted: Thu Apr 21, 2011 1:34 pm

Have noticed several things changing at the feeders this week. The wire feeder has now been taken over by the Goldfinches instead of the Chickadees. The Downey Woodpeckers have taken over the peanut feeder from the Titmice. The woodpeckers are eating 15 to 20 peanuts a day. The Doves still come in on the ground along with the Juncos. But the Juncos are turning to there summer colors. In the winter they are slate grey with white breasts and stomachs. But now they are sporting dull brown with a dingy looking light great underneath.

I'm seeing lots of changes here too CK. All the birds are now in their summer plumage and are gathering nesting materials. The Siskis and Redpolls have gone along with the Long Tailed Tits. However, there are more Greenfinches, Goldfinches and other small birds visting the feeding station now.

The Rose Breasted Grosbeak has been back to the feeder several times a day for the past several days. Hey will eat for a while then takes off for the wooded section. I figure they have a nest there somewhere. Haven't seen a female so she must be setting on eggs.

Do your Juncos stay around? All of them here have gone off in search of cooler places. I love them, and hate to say goodbye; although it means it is spring and warmer temps.

Mine stick around, but in the summer, they move to the woods along my property where its cooler. But you can see them in the underbrush hopping from limb to limb.
