Another Cooper’s Hawk attack around our bird feeders on November 22, 2016. This time by a juvenile, probably female hawk (due to large size)
We have several juvenile Northern Cardinals hanging out this fall at our backyard feeders! They’re very entertaining trying to get their turn at the seed feeders – mainly the sunflower seed tray.
These Northern forest dwellers, the Pine Siskins, had never stopped by our urban backyard feeders before two seasons ago when 2 of the cute little birds showed up. They’re about the same size as a large Goldfinch
