  1. This fellow decided to hunt my front yard today. Not sure I'm good enough to tell which this is, especially with the immature coloring! Upstate NY
  2. Upstate NY, pictures taken yesterday. I have video if these aren't enough
  3. Upstate NY, pictures taken today. I have a camera that watches my birdbath-fountain, and I spotted this fellow today. I have a video too if these aren't enough.
  4. The fact that it appears to be regional makes me think its more a transportation issue. But its hard to tell for sure without actually talking to the vendors. I know my store has had at least SOME birdseed in for most of the last month, but what bird seed has varied, and its selling out just as fast as we get it in. I know for fact that several manufacturers (of non-birding products) have completely empty warehouses and their manufacturing lines are running full blast, everything is coming straight off the line and go onto a truck and right into the stores, and they STILL can't get the
  5. Upstate NY, pictures taken today. The only thing I usually see here for Grosbeaks is Rose-breasted. But they're also usually gone by now. So when I spotted this bird my first thought was a late migrating female. But I'm not sure the markings are right? So maybe late migrating young male?
  6. This fellow threw me for a loop today. Is this a young Cardinal? Upstate NY, taken today.
  7. I work for Home Depot. At least here we've had trouble getting any birdseed at all into the stores. I'm not sure if its a transportation issue or manufacturing issue, but the national and international supply chain is pretty screwed right now, so it could be either.
  8. Thanks guys! I don't think I've ever actually seen them before!
  9. Got home from work and my husband informs me that there's a bunch of weird looking Gold Finches in the pear trees.....yah, they're not GoldFinches. I can spot Warblers, but not which variety. Upstate NY, pictures taken today.
  10. The penny idea makes me twitchy. To much copper can be lethal, and there's no easy way to measure the levels in the water. Now, yes, the fact that we're having to add more water so frequently means that its unlikely to build up to that level, but without a good and easy way to tell what the levels are I'm wary of doing that. Vinegar was one of the things that I saw too, though I have doubts that a capful or the like would be ENOUGH. I used to have fish tanks, and a capful of vinegar in a decent sized tank of water doesn't really make a significant difference in any of the levels that are m
  11. I'm assuming its the extra bird poo honestly. The setup itself hasn't changed at all. I don't really want to reduce the size, we're having to fill it every 2-3 days (we're cleaning the bucket every filling) now as it is, theres so many birds using it!
