I headed to the Circle B Bar Reserve on my off-Friday determined to remember to check the eagle’s nest next to the Nature Center. I always seem to forget to walk over and check it on my way out! As I arrived at the nest, I saw one Bald Eagle sitting on it. Another eagle […]
The goldfinches are eating us out of house and home this winter! I’m having to refill the niger feeder every couple of days. The birds line up in the crape myrtle in order to wait for a free port at the feeder. I went out with The Beast and tried to capture some videos of […]
Goldilocks was pleased to eat lunch outside this afternoon and see at least eight Goldyfinches in her yard. A couple pecked at the niger feeder seeds, but most ate at the black oil sunflower feeder. It’s nice to have their cheerful little calls back in the neighborhood!
Rich saw the first American Goldfinch of the season in our backyard last weekend. Today we got home early enough that it wasn’t dark, and I got to see him. Yay! The “Potato chip!” birdies are back!
Right on schedule, we had our first American Goldfinch in the backyard today. I wasn’t home (I was chasing otters at the Circle B Bar Reserve, more on that tomorrow!) … but Rich assures me that there was indeed a goldfinch on the niger feeder this morning. He stayed for several minutes at least. Yay! […]
Our two goldfinches continue to molt. It’s strange to only have the two visiting the yard. Usually by this time in the year, I’ve had to pull out the 24-port feeder, which I usually end up refilling several times a week! Where are all the goldfinches?
What do you get when you cross cute yellow birds and the wicked witch of the west? “We’re mooooolting!”
We’ve been enjoying the cheerful sounds of the goldfinches each morning. They’re so cute! It seems like some of them have left the yard, since the niger seed isn’t disappearing as quickly as it was a few weeks ago, but we still have a couple of faithful guys that come every morning.
After two years of talking about it, Rich and I finally made it to Callaway Gardens…and thanks to Tropical Storm Fay, it rained the whole time we were there! But I saw my first hummingbirds, we were pleasantly surprised to run into some of our FL winter bird friends, and two of the butterflies in […]
