UPSTANDING!

UPSTANDING AND STANDING UP

Upstanding. Is that the same as standing up? Here are three upstanding birds. From very big to much smaller. All standing up and upstanding.

    • My favorite in this batch is the Rose-Breasted Grosbeak. He looks like an American flag with those odd shaped white patches on his dark back and the red chest. They don’t come here very often. In fact, I haven’t seen any of them this year.

    • Fat and happy. My goal it to keep everyone fed so they don’t eat each other. Out there in the wild, it isn’t anything like a Disney movie!

        • At least the Blue Jays have gotten a lot less aggressive since I got a new flat feeder. I get groups of them — three or four at a time. The other birds fly to the trees while the BJ’s eat. EXCEPT the woodpeckers. I’ve seen showdowns between Blue Jays and woodpeckers. The woodpeckers just give the Blue Jays that “look” and the Blues say “Never mind. I’ll come back later.” Woodpeckers are not afraid of other birds, at least not the medium and bigger woodpeckers. They have a double weight skull and a beak that can cut through an oak board.

          • We don’t have Blue Jays but we do have a variety of feeders spread throughout front and back gardens to help the smaller ones
