A Little Bird Told Me

Actually many little birds told me.  That is, they told me that I need to refill the bird feeder with bird seed.  These tiny birds are just mobbing the feeder.  We fill this feeder every three days and it is not a small feeder.  Not that I mind very much.  I delight in seeing the White-breasted Nuthatches, Carolina Chickadees, House Finches, Northern Cardinals, and Tufted Titmice that are now regulars at the feeder.

I also see one of the Red-headed Woodpeckers at the feeder.  I am no longer seeing any Red-winged Blackbirds or Brown-headed Cowbirds here at the feeder.  One bird that does not eat seed is the Eastern Bluebird.  I am showing a youngster that is just now turning orange and blue.  Bluebirds eat insects and are a wonderful bird to have here.  I took these pictures from my living room window and from the yard on August 28, 2012.  Please click on the thumbnail image to see the larger picture.  Enjoy!

    oh no! that means the blackbirds and cowbirds are heading my way again!!! they winter here and eat me out of house and home! 🙂

  2. The blackbirds can be real pigs, now your little birds can relax at your feeders. Great shots! Have a great day tomorrow.

  3. Hi Linda, My birds stand outside my window early each morning begging for me to get up and feed them. I usually do!!!!!! They are so special–and I know how hungry they are…

    Do you have Mourning Doves? I have three now—and they love to ‘hog’ the plate feeder!!!!! ha

    Got a tiny bit of rain yesterday finally –about 1/2 an inch. Hope we get more soon…

    Hugs,
    Betsy

    • Hi Betsy, No rain today. We had a tiny shower yesterday with a bit of thunder. I think we may have a little rain tomorrow. Hope it won’t spoil anyone’s holiday plans. Yes, we do have the doves here. Have a fine day tomorrow and thanks for your great comments!

  4. That’s a great shot of the Chickadee! I hope some of our blackbirds will leave for other parts too. I can hardly keep the feeders filled with them around.

  5. Awesome captures! Now that you mention it, I now notice our RW Blackbirds are gone. Yep, it’s time for migration! So exciting to think about photographing what decides to pass our way very soon! 🙂
