We started off the new year with lots of birds! It’s the time of year when flocks of red-winged blackbirds and brown-headed cowbirds descend upon the big feeder in the backyard. We’ve also had a significant increase in goldfinches in the last week or so. We’re now seeing about 20 at a time, at the niger seed feeders and at the sunflower seed feeders. Perhaps it has something to do with putting out the 20 port feeder again? ;-)
Goldy likes her Christmas present – a tray feeder in front of her window. She doesn’t seem to notice the birds coming to and from the tube feeders, but she doesn’t miss all the activity at the swinging tray!
