Feeder birds

After we filled up the feeders, the parade started soon.

Groups of 2 & 3 visitors at a time nabbed a few seeds and gave their place to the waiting multitudes, who arrived from surrounding trees. This was not entirely peaceful, including disagreements about the 'pecking order.'

I wouldn't have thought that we'd have so many Carolina Chickadees, Tufted Titmice, White-breasted Nuthatches, Northern Cardinals, and who knows what else living in the woods behind our small mountain house.

It was definitely a parade.

  1. I am anxious to see all the different birds we will have at the lake. Will have to look up the gnatcatcher.

  2. Actually what I meant to write was White-breasted Nuthatches. But, blue-gray gnatcatchers are one of the early spring arrivals in our eastern forests, quite cool, too.

Please share your thoughts. I enjoy hearing from fellow nature observers, as well as whomever else drops by.
