Birds are most actively foraging early in the morning, and then again just before dark. I caught that evening rush, but in truth many are active much of the day as they take in as much nutrition as possible to ensure a healthy clutch of eggs, or begin the long journey to their breeding grounds. Anyway I had fun, and here are some of the results.
|A Gray Catbird searches for seeds under the feeders|
|This Hermit Thrush has been a regular all winter.|
In a little over a month it will be off to Canada
|Bluebirds have paired off by now, and will be looking |
for suitable nesting sites in about two weeks.
Who says they don't visit tube feeders?
Where there are mealworms Bluebirds will go.
|A male Pine Warbler gets his share of mealworms too|
|Female Red-winged Blackbirds seem to be everywhere right now|
|White-breasted Nuthatches often live in an upside-down world, |
scurrying down a tree head first. This one raided the peanut feeder.
