They Are Back!
I am so thankful that the Rose-breasted Grosbeak have returned to my feeders.
The male and the female . . .
They have been eating safflower seeds like crazy. I am filling the feeder daily. They visit my area in summer and during migration. We have four males and four females at the feeders.
A sweet House Wren has been building a nest in the wren house hanging in the birch trees by our deck. He sings all day long! You can see the twig in his mouth then peeking out of his house.
This small Downy Woodpecker is a daily visitor. I had to laugh as he visited every feeder plus tried to peck our metal bird stand.
Then I noticed the reason he was at the seed feeders instead of the upside down suet feeder he usually visits.
The Brown Thrasher has returned for the summer.
He is about 11" in size and is a rusty red bird with a long tail and heavily streaked chest and belly. Check out his bright yellow eyes.
Sorry not a great pic of him in flight but still sharing it. I only had my iPhone with me when I saw him in my neighbor's yard.
Thanks for stopping by for another week of At the Feeders and in the Trees - Judy.
