A variety of visitors outside my kitchen window ~~
While Phil sat on the deck steps putting on his boots, we counted 7 blue jays in the trees around the yard!
I love the gold finches! This was the end of this bag of feed. When I bought new bird food, I also bought a thistle seed sock. That has been covered at times with gold finches.
And then the Grosbeaks arrived! I don’t think I’ve ever seen these but JP has known the names of all our birds. (He used to POUR over bird books when he was in grade school!)
Four grosbeaks at one time!! They finished this feeder load and when I refilled it, the grosbeaks haven’t returned. Not sure about that; I only touched the top screw & cover and the other birds are back. ???
We get lots of purple finches…. so common, that I didn’t get their photo.
This has been my best year for birds at the feeder. I usually hang a pot of flowers here in the summer. I bought a hanging pot yesterday. Now where do I put it?
