Another first at our backyard feeders, this big male Red-bellied Woodpecker bypassed the peanuts and suet to eat whole sunflower seeds on our feeder!
A new observation at our backyard feeders. Red-bellied Woodpeckers had been gone from our backyard for a few months but one male recently returned to our feeders and is doing something unseen before – eating whole corn kernels off the deck!
Black-capped Chickadees are another one of those overachiever birds. They work hard for their food and energy.
We just had our second visit ever to our backyard feeders by a black phase Gray Squirrel. I wanted to add a picture but it got spooked up a nearby tree by some noise outside.
Sometimes pictures just speak to you, and this shot of an American Goldfinch and a White-breasted Nuthatch on the Nijer seed sock is one I like.
This only started happening the past two seasons but for brief periods we get invaded by cute little Pine Siskins that fly down out of the North woods to visit our backyard feeders.
Well, I was just saying my Hummingbirds are not gone yet but here it has now been almost 4 days without seeing one little hummer out back at any of the feeders.
We have a new visitor out back. Smelled something skunky quite a few mornings but this is the first time we actually observed this skunk out back eating under our feeders!
