NEW FOOD, DIFFERENT BIRDS

We didn’t change foods with any idea of attracting different birds, but we seem to gotten new birds anyway. Which isn’t a bad thing, but is a bit of a surprise.

We are see far fewer finches — which were the dominant small birds for the past five years — and a lot of new birds we’ve seen only rarely or not at all. Flickers — green and red — have arrived along with Baltimore Orioles (not the baseball team). And we have an influx of Rose-crested Grosbeaks. We’ve seen one now and then, but now we have groups of them. Meanwhile, all the baby Tufted Titmouses have fledged. There were a dozen of them in one feeder this evening. Little ones. Very cute miniatures of their parents.

It was a great day for Rose-Breasted Grosbeaks. I’m hoping to get a few pictures of the Northern Flickers. We seem to have both colors. They look very similar to the Red-Bellied Woodpecker, except they have different colors — light green breasts rather than white, for example.
