Birds at the Feeder

Here are a few more pictures I have taken of the various songbirds that come to the bird feeder that is next to my front porch.  I see these birds on a regular basis.  The “King” of the bird feeder is the male Red-winged Blackbird.  He makes one or two circuits, walking around the tray of the feeder before leaving.  I am not sure if this action was because at first he was not clear about how to get the birdseed out, and it has become a habit,  or if the action is a territorial claim.

The other birds that come to the feeder here are:  the Brown-headed Cow Birds, the Chipping Sparrow, the Tufted Titmice, the Red-headed Woodpecker, White-breasted Nuthatches, and House Finches.  Occasionally I also see Mourning Doves near the feeder and also Canada Geese, Wood Ducks, and Mallard Ducks as well.  Please click on the thumbnail image to see the larger picture.  Enjoy!

  3. Redwings are like that 🙂 A Red-Headed Woodpecker at your feeder, that’s cool!

    • Hi Seasons, Yes, the Red-headed Woodpecker does like coming to the feeder and is getting much better at obtaining the seed from the holes in the sides of the large tube. Have a wonderful coming week and a most pleasant day today!

  4. Very nice assortment of birds! I see there what I see here too: the different species seem to get along with each other.
