  1. I haven't had a chance to post in a while as I've been working 6-7 days a week for the last 2-3 months. UGH. None of the birds from the first brood survived. A red-tail hawk got one, and a neighbors cat got the other two. I was crushed. Second brood of three were good. Third brood they moved to my neighbors box on his property and they had four. We have a sizable blue bird population! As a side-note, my neighbor (with the cats that are constantly in my yard) had an argument last weekend. We've several conversations and text messages about their cats and he has stated r
  2. I am having some difficulty trying to identify this particular bird. I was hoping to get some help if possible. Thank you
  3. I checked and there is a new nest in the box. Male was feeding the young most of the day today and feeding the female. Should have a second brood soon.
  4. The look in his eyes says it all. This was taken about 5 seconds before he attacked me.
  5. I got extremely lucky over the weekend and saw one too eating suet. I had a double take and never saw one before.
  6. I put a mini bluebird trail in my backyard that runs along a biking/walking trail behind our property. I put the first house up three years ago and finished with a third bluebird house last year. This year was the first time the bluebirds FINALLY took to one of the boxes. The young ones fledged on May 15. Here is a picture of the proud papa getting meal worms for his little ones. In addition this particular feeder has been the most effective feeder for the Eastern Bluebirds. I took an old wire suet feeder and lined the inside of the walls so the larger birds could not force their way in f
  7. My neighbor a few houses down gets bluebirds in his bluebird house every year. Even though I have a bluebird house, put out mealworms and have bird baths they never take to mine. I was talking my neighbor two weeks ago and he told me he had 5 babies in the house but after a couple of days they were all dead and the bluebirds were no where around. They tried going in my birdhouse but the sparrows kept kicking them out so they ended up going to another neighbors bird house. The are very close to our backyard and are around the majority of the day. I checked the box and there are some eg
  8. I'm new here and wanted to share my bird experiences from the last few weeks. Two weeks ago on a Saturday evening I put the hummingbird and oriole feeders. I cut several oranges in half and put them out with grape jelly. The next morning I woke up to the sound of a male Baltimore Oriole at the feeder. Not long after some females arrived. After about three days I stopped counting the number orioles I had in our backyard. They eat up the grape jelly and oranges in a few days and so I make sure to keep the feeders full. The last week I noticed purple finches and gray catbirds going to
