Before April ends I think I'll tackle one more Easter stitch. I pulled out two different variegated threads - I'm thinking the one on the left will win out.
A few days ago a large flock of Evening Grosbeaks swooped in "Chrring" away noisily.
The guys are so bright and cheerful.
It turned out to be the perfect time to try out my newest feeder.
The dome feeder on the left is new and the Grosbeaks appear fine with it.
I even captured a bird in flight to the feeders.
The Grosbeaks will also feed on the ground.
I'd rather they use the feeders as they are safer there. The slanted roof of this feeder has worked a charm in keeping the Band-tailed Pigeons from gorging out. Yea!
I also had a very large group of American Goldfinches and Pine Siskins.
The feeder on the upper left is a 'cling' feeder designed so that only small song birds can hang on.
I counted 24 Goldfinches and 27 Grosbeaks!
Besides the food, having water available is also important.
Everyone enjoys a natter at the water fountain!
