Sorry it has been so long since I posted one of these. My brand new photo editing computer crapped out & even after attempted help from the great Myo, I had to send it out for repair. Anyways, during that time my wife got a new bird feeder that sticks to a window. I had seen it at a job I did and the lady had tons of birds visiting all the time and you could sit in your house and watch them eat. She even gave me some food to attract birds but because it is clear, no birds came for over a month. We even put food around the feeder but that only got interest from a squirrel. Eventually we got our first visitor that has since become a regular, a house finch.
Soon after, he brought his mate and they started to come more and more frequently.
We started to get more than one couple and sometimes they come together but often they come alone. I thought it was just one couple at first until I saw a second couple jockeying for space. Sometimes they will even get more than just the couple in there but usually just singles or couples.
Since then we have a bunch of other types of birds starting to show up which I will feature in another episode. This past week, I was hanging out at a friends house and their next door neighbor had a very active feeder. All the males seemed to be gold finches.
I didn’t know too much about gold finches but when I looked up the females, most pictures I saw did not look like this one. This looks like the house finch we had back at our place.
She seemed to fit right in with the boys here so I could be mistaken, although many finch types do get along well together.
It was really nonstop action at this feeder, ours are never as busy as this set of feeders were.
They basically would just fly into the trees surrounding the feeders and hangout until they were hungry again. Good life if you can get it.
I have a bunch more of new bird droppings for you, I guess I’m scheduled for Sundays usually? Maybe I will try to post some more then. Hope these little guys brought you some joy and please share your feeder tales!
