A visit to my birdfeeder to seen what is going on with the birds of central Ohio.


Cow bird

Category: Bird Brain Blog | Posted: Sun Mar 27, 2011 10:25 pm

Sat out on the front deck for a while this afternoon. The sun was out brightly, but the wind was out of the northeast and was brutally cold. But in the sun and out of the wind was pleasant. Had a male Cowbird come up to the feeding area and was getting some seeds and cracked corn off of the ground.

The Cowbird is a weird kind of bird. It looks like a black bird but has a brown head. It hangs out with blackbirds and starlings. They female dosn't build a nest. Instead she lays her eggs in nest's of other birds and lets them raise her young. She may lay as many as 3 doz. eggs this way a season.

Spring activity

We had several days of 60 and 70 deg. F temps and the activity at the feeder really slowed down. Mostly it was the ground feeding birds and the Goldfinches. Now it cooled back down into the 30 and 40's and the activity has increased again. The male goldfinches are really starting to turn yellow again. Right now they are a bright yellowish green. Also have had a few house finches too. Seeing more robins in the yard looking for worms.
