I last posted about a week ago. The weather has been good enough, and I found a few decent birds, so it was a good week. One interesting thing about the pandemic is that many of my favorite spots are seeing a lot more traffic. Not a big problem so far.
Siskins and Nuthatches are still around. Otherwise, it’s just the regulars, although a few Tundra Swans have arrived. No decent images yet. It was way windy today, and the swans were somewhat distant.
I’m still staking out the feeder after checking for ducks, who should be in the area soon.
A few Cardinals came and went.
A very striking Cardinal. If you can find a good place to stand, you can get some awesome close ups at a feeder.
Another closeup. Tufted Titmouse.
Downy Woodpeckers are attracted to feeders.
This Red Bellied Woodpecker stayed in the area, but I didn’t see him at the feeder.
White Throated Sparrows seem to feed only on the ground.
Carolina Wrens are not particularly timid.
Bluebirds will come to a feeder if you have mealworms.
A few House Finches are in the area.
This Red Breasted Nuthatch was by himself.
How long will the Pine Siskins stay around?
A Goldfinch and a Siskin share a moment.
This Yellow Rumped Warbler was at Sandy Point.
I expect to start seeing more Dark Eyed Juncos soon.
A Starling in good light can be attractive.
This late Great Egret was at CBEC.
It’s always a treat to see these handsome birds forage upside down.
