The bird feeders today
« on: May 07, 2017, 05:48:56 PM »
Had a male and a female Black-Headed Grosbeak, and a Bullock's Oriole at the feeder station at the same time. And if I had taken the pic two seconds earlier, there would have been a hummingbird in the shot.

Didn't take the Grosbeaks long to find the new suet feeder

Nice pics, EM. If I took pics of my feeders all you'd see is a bunch of @*$!# squirrels hanging upside-down emptying them.

Nice, we have had Hummingbirds since last Friday, and Rose Breasted Grosbeaks and Baltimore Orioles since Sunday. Good to see the colorful songbirds returning. You have a lot more variants of the birds down there. It didn't take the Orioles long to find the jelly feeder!
