Birds Outside my Window…

Birds Outside my Window…

I decided to put up my bird feeder a bit early this year, since I can’t do as much birding as I would normally be doing, I thought that I’d see if the birds would start to come back if I offered them some food…

Well I guess “if you build it they will come“ is happening…

I’ve started seeing a few more birds than I had been seeing this past summer. Like the Tufted Titmouse, Carolina Chickadee, Northern Cardinal, Ruby-throated Hummingbird, Carolina Wren and Eastern Bluebird. Some are just more of the same, probably the adults with their 1st years that they are still teaching.

I have also seen a few birds that weren’t in my yard at all this summer. Like the American Goldfinch, Summer Tanager, House Finch and Chipping Sparrow.

I am keeping my eye out for migrating birds. Most of the Warblers should be passing through soon and I would really like to see some of them.

Here are some photos of the birds that I have been seeing. Try to guess what they are…

This is the Tufted Titmouse. See how it has a sunflower seed, those are their favorites. They will take one seed at a time and go off and break it open with their bill, then come back for another.

Next…

Here is a House Finch. A couple of weeks ago I saw one with a growth on its bill, but this one looked okay. I haven’t seen any in my yard for a few months, but now they’ve shown up again.

The Carolina Chickadee has been around this summer, but now they are more visible since I’ve put the feeder out.

Remember to stay healthy and stay safe!
