  1. Yes Ik what you mean once done you can’t change it and it’s hard to blame the cats bc they are just doing what is natural for the cats instincts .
  2. Yes I have tried to also do that but where I live in such a rural place only have one place and it’s a kill shelter after so many days so I rather not take them there I rather give them a chance some other way that Ik loves cats and don’t mind taking them in. .
  3. I have done the cage have taken off quite a few lately. I had to do something no one wanted to claim the poor cats and I don’t want to hurt them but I did make sure they was in a area they can get food and other cat lovers . I don’t want cats but I want hurt them either and went out of my way to get owner that Ik was the owner to take care of them or something but didn’t happen no claim on them . So I did what I thought best bc I love my birds and trying to bring diff ones in but didn’t want to if they was just going to get killed like all the poor little rabbits did . But I went with the live cage capture and place them where they be taken care of . Thanks for info and advice .
  4. Yes I have with neighbors cats killing my birds and my doves ask if anyone owned the cats bc I caged them and gave to shelter. except one she claimed but she did catch him and he only been back a couple times that Ik of . But now have another one I try to be nice and respectful to others animals if they try to work with me bc I believe if you have s pet take care of it and keep on your property as I do mine .but if they chose not to then I will have to take another route to save my birds . Bc they killed all my rabbits also they keep my squirrels away so cats got to go .
  5. These are the goldenfinches these are the mature males .
  6. Yes these are the ones that’s eating my hummingbird food but I have also seen the big ones with the red head on my hummingbird feeders a few times also . Don’t know if they was just checking it out or what .
  7. No these are mature ones my females change to a brownish color more than a yellow and green now the males are yellow with black wings . We may have same but mine look sorta diff . I will take a pic and send .to show you . Thanks
  8. Aww they are so pretty mine look about that size but just a little diff in markings must be a diff kind of goldenfinch there than here . I am learning a lot . Thank you for the pic .
  9. Yes I have it out all around it seems they don’t care much for it as well as sunflower seeds. Then the smaller ones drink all my hummingbird feed . I wouldn’t mind them if they wouldn’t keep my other birds away . And they don’t stop until it’s all gone .
  10. I would love to have that many at my feeder . I would stock up at that time if they come like that all the time ???? I wish I could get rid of the woodpeckers they run my golden finch off and they don’t stop eating and pecking a hole in my porch to hide the seeds in . Then the smaller type eats my humming bird food keeps my Hummers away
  11. Love to see a pic. I have goldfinches all year long in Wv but haven’t seen tiny tiny ones .
  12. I live in Wv and it’s just opposite here with the golden finches I have a lot here cardinals , blue jays, red headed wood peckers , blue birds , chickadees , a few more but as far as dropping off from feeding they have her but just the blue jays and cardinals, bluebirds took there babies and left. Idk if it’s the heat or what bc it’s been in the 90’s here for last couple wks . But my finches are still feeding good from feeders. and my hummers are Here everyday but somedays there are a few more than other days . But still enjoy watching them .
  13. I have a question if all the blue bird babies don’t leave the nest with the others do the parents still come and feed the one still on the nest ?
  14. Aww so sad I hate to hear about the babies not making it . yes I would make a box that be hard for these animals to get to before they decide not to nest there next yr. wishing you luck hope next yr is better for the blue bird babies .
  15. Mine had 3 on her last batch like I said she has 3 babies I had to put a umbrella over her nesting box it is 100* here no wind they was gasping for breath and I put a wet towel over the box to and set up a fan . Couldn’t let my babies bake without doing anything . Love my blue birds ♥️ Happy 4th Have fun but be safe doing it ??
  16. I check mine box a couple days ago this was her 3 batch so far normally they have 5 eggs but this time she had 3 check the box and all 3 eggs hatch so she has 3 new babies now. So far mom & dad are feeding them well and watching over them .
  17. Mine only has 3 eggs in this time normally there are 5 hadn’t hatch yet check on them today but should be soon hope all 3 hatch and live bc I agree everyone born and lives to adult hood means more and more I get to see and enjoy watching them such s beautiful bird to watch .
  18. Wow be nice to see mine have a third batch but as far as I know this batch is her second . But not 100% sure in that . But she only builds in two places that I know of and one is in a power pole at the back of my home that hooks up to my trailor they stop nesting there for yrs but now this yr they had the first batch there. But now back in my front yard in a bird box that my dad built for me about 20 yrs ago amp bird ever nested in it all that time until last yr she had two batches there. Now she has her second batch in it again . I see more blue birds around but they all go away except one pair and the female has been here for last 3 yrs but she had to get a new mate bc hers got killed by a snake last yr . Broke my heart I don’t know if they feel but it really look like she was lost she just sit on my line for hrs until her babies hatch then that kept her busy trying to feed 4 babies on her own until big enough to fly . But I love reading these post about the blue birds and of course other species . Hope no one minds me replying to some of the post I enjoy learning all I can .
  19. First batch they nested way high in my power pole on my trailor nested there for last 5/7 yrs last yr started nesting in a nesting box in my yard they raised one batch last yr then a batch in on my porch in a nesting box this yr back for second batch in nesting box again . love watching these beautiful blue birds . Can’t wait to see babies in a couple wks .
  20. I bet that was a beautiful site to watch . And watch the parents call them to them . i had a set that nested on my porch last yr they also nested in my yard twice that first yr in s box but they chose my porch but the male got killed by a black snake we tried to get to him before the snake got him but couldn’t so mommy hatch 4 babies and took care of them on her own but I think they came off to early we go to check on them and they were off on the ground and couldn’t fly that good yet they look old enough but not sure they were but idk where the mommy went didn’t see her come for them but I am sure they didn’t live . But we had to let nature run it’s cource. And not interfere bc wasn’t sure if mommy was out there or came back for them I really hope they lived though.
  21. Oh I understand that didn’t mean it that way just knew if I had them it would be such a blessing bc those of us that have diff birds love to have other bird sources around to enjoy as well . I am sure it is loud so close just wish we all could have them lol ??
  22. I have them get into old boots and old tea kettles I have hanging to put flowers in but the little brown tens took over so I couldn’t plant flowers in them lol . But love watching the babies hatch and start s life of there own such a blessing to be able to have birds I can hear singing at 5 am each morning in the spring and summer mths while I set in my swing drinking my coffee when all else is peaceful .
  23. Hi melndallas I was reading through the post found yours about the Hummers and mine was just the opposite this year . i had a male come in about 3wks before seeing a female it was really late didn’t think I was going to have any this yr . I don’t know why so late but I think the seasons are off but anyways now I do just now have 4/5 hoping by July they all will be in here . but I was thinking we have had so many storms that maybe a lot didn’t make the migration this yr . only thing I can think of But I watch a group about hummies out of California all yr around . Normally any question I have I go to them before I knew about this site . But he has Rufus and Anna’s mostly where I have Ruby’s . But love to chic chat about hummies anytime with you it’s nice to find someone else that love the hummies as much as me . But hope your hummies come soon bc I get most of mine when migrating out . But love to watch either way . And it is expensive to feed the birds I have so many diff ones . But love to watch and watch our baby deer running around now also lol . Thank you . Leandz
  24. tclarkwood that would be a blessing if I could wake hearing the singing of so many birds and diff species . Sounds like a blessing lol . thank you for sharing.
