Around the Feeder

Recommended Posts

This is a photo from a few years ago.  At that time, I had the luxury of having a feeder outside of a window in my study. Now, I walk through a couple of felds to a feeder that I hung on a private property, that I have permission to do so. 

Please feel free to share some photos if you have them. I'd love to see them.

I get lots and lots of American Goldfinches (up to 50 at a time):


And lots of Eastern Bluebirds (up to a dozen at a time):



And every now and then some odd combinations:

Northern Flicker and Red-winged Blackbird:



Carolina Wren, Purple Finch, American Goldfinch:

Overcast today in Pennsylvania, so poor lighting for pictures.  But lots of birds!

First pic shows my feeder and birdbath set up (there is a sixth feeder I use for flying squirrels well out of frame on the right).  The pond down the hill behind my house attracts Red-winged Blackbirds and once in a while they come up to my feeders.  Today I got close to 100 (I count about 60 in the picture and there were many more hidden behind the wall).  Usually I have tons of smaller birds, but when the RWBL flock showed up the little ones flew up into the trees to wait them out.  Only one Eastern Bluebird stuck around (sitting on the mealworm feeder on the far right).



When there is snow on the ground, my wall becomes an extra feeder:
