  1. Thanks guys, I was pretty sure, but wanted a double check
  2. I'm so jealous! My husband I have been discussing putting up a box, we hear them ALOT by us. But I'm not sure I have an appropriate tree in a spot where I could watch it easily. I plan to spend this summer paying extra attention to trees and locations and what not with an eye towards putting up a box in the fall.
  3. I've never had much luck with dried mealworms, the birds just don't seem to care. Live ones get lots of attention though. In the over all scheme of things I can think of alot worse things to feed then dried worms, even if they aren't the most nutritious thing ever.
  4. I've had a bird fountain based on a heated bird bath for a couple years now, and last year I put a camera on it to watch the birds. I shut down the fountain for the winter, but since the bird bath is heated I kept it full of water, and was delighted to spot Bluebirds at it several times over the winter. A couple weeks ago I placed a small glass jar in it with mealworms in it, on the theory that the heated water ought to be enough to keep the worms alive, and it was, and the bluebirds have found the mealworms.

  5. Upstate NY state, today pictures have been lightened to help show markings clearer

  7. Upstate NY, pictures taken yesterday. I have video if these aren't enough
  8. 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.
  9. 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
  10. 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?
  11. This fellow threw me for a loop today. Is this a young Cardinal? Upstate NY, taken today.
